Charlotte Bobcats forward Adam Morrison underwent successful anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery this morning to repair the tear in his left knee. The procedure was performed by team physician Dr. Glenn Perry at Presbyterian Orthopedic Hospital in Charlotte. He will remain in the hospital until Monday before being cleared to begin full rehabilitation.
Morrison suffered the injury with 5:23 left in the third quarter of the Bobcats preseason contest against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday, Oct. 20. X-rays taken immediately following that game came back negative, but an MRI taken the following day showed a partial to complete tear of the ACL.
The Bobcats will host the Houston Rockets on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 6:00 p.m. (ET) at Charlotte Bobcats Arena. The game can be seen on News 14 Carolina and heard live on WNMX Mix 106.1 FM and across the Bobcats radio network.
