Rashad McCantsThe Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that guard Rashad McCants underwent successful microfracture surgery on his right knee. Team orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Fischer performed the surgery at the TRIA Orthopedic Center on Friday.

McCants is expected to make a full recovery, with a rehabilitation timeline of four-six months.

"It's an unfortunate situation because Rashad has been working really hard this offseason, and was looking forward to playing in the upcoming summer league games," said Timberwolves Vice President of Basketball Operations Kevin McHale. "We expect Rashad to recover fully from the injury. He's a very talented young man, and we are going to make sure he is 100% healthy before he comes back."

McCants, a first-round pick (14th overall) in the 2005 NBA Draft from the University of North Carolina, averaged 7.9 points (.450 FG%) on 45.0% shooting from the field in 79 contests (12 starts) during the 2005-06 NBA season. The 6-4 guard set a Timberwolves franchise rookie record for three-point field goal percentage at 37.2%.
