gilbert arenas injuredWashington Wizards President of Basketball Operations Ernie Grunfeld announced today that guard Gilbert Arenas has sustained a lateral meniscus tear in his left knee, and the tear will be repaired by arthroscopic surgery.

Arenas, who suffered the injury in the first quarter of Washington’s game vs. Charlotte on April 4, is expected to be out for 2-3 months.

"Gilbert was performing at an elite level," Grunfeld said. "It’s unfortunate that this injury occurred, but being the competitor that he is, Gilbert will approach his rehab regimen with the same work ethic that has made him one of the league’s most outstanding performers. We expect him to make a full recovery, and we know that his teammates will be up to the challenge to respond in his absence."

Arenas will undergo arthroscopic surgery today at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, DC. The surgery will be performed by Wizards team physician Dr. Marc Connell. Arenas will begin rehabilitation next week, and is expected to make a full recovery.

Arenas averaged 28.4 points and 6.0 assists per game in 74 contests this season, and made his third consecutive All Star appearance. Arenas will finish the regular season with 2,105 points scored, becoming the franchise’s first player since Walt Bellamy to score 2,000+ points in three consecutive seasons. Arenas gave the Wizards buzzer-beating wins in four games this season, and established a new single game franchise scoring record when he scored 60 points at Los Angeles on December 17. He won three Eastern Conference Player of the Week awards this season, and took home Eastern Conference Player of the Month honors in December.
