Los Angeles Clippers’ guard Kareem Rush underwent successful surgery on his right knee today to repair the torn ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) and partially torn lateral meniscus he suffered at New Orleans on November 17th. In addition, a microfracture procedure was also performed on the knee.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache and was assisted by Clippers’ team physician Dr. Steven Shimoyama. No timetable has been set for Rush’s return.
In seven games played this season, Rush averaged 1.3 points in 8.3 minutes per game.
