Sergey Karasev underwent successful right knee surgery Thursday night and is expected to be ready for training camp next season, the team announced today.
“Sergey underwent successful right knee surgery to repair damage that occurred in association with a patellar dislocation on Thursday night,” team doctor Riley Williams III said in a prepared statement. “The surgery included the removal of several loose bodies as well as the repair of the medial patella femoral ligament and the medial collateral ligament. A full recovery is anticipated, and he is expected to be ready for training camp next season.”
The 21-year-old guard had fallen out of the Nets rotation, playing in just 33 games (16 starts) and averaging 4.6 points and 2.0 rebounds per game. He injured the knee in the fourth quarter of the team’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday, March 10.
