Report: With microfracture surgery looming, season over for Hawks' Claxton

ESPN.com news services
Updated: December 23, 2007, 1:45 PM ET

Speedy Claxton, who signed a four-year deal worth $25 million with the Atlanta Hawks in July 2006 and is facing microfracture surgery, will miss the rest of the season due to an injury to his left knee according to a published report.

Claxton is "contemplating his next step" and hasn't made a decision about whether or not he will have the surgery that could help extend his career, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The injury could mean he's played his last game in the NBA.

"This is something you have to think through before doing anything one way or the other," Claxton told the paper about the possibility of surgery.

Claxton has not played a game this season and only made 42 appearances last year. He received the recommendation for microfracture surgery from noted sports surgeon Dr. Richard Steadman, according to the Journal-Constitution.

It's troubling that he may never play another game. Best of wishes to Craig "Speedy" Claxton.

Hey thanks for posting a thread, B3. I didn't get on too much yesterday and didn't get to it.
