KG Undergoes Successful Knee Surgery

 

During what is likely to be an eventful offseason for this Boston Celtics team, key element number one was completed today as Kevin Garnett went under the knife at New England Baptist Hospital.

The surgery comes after Garnett delayed the procedure for weeks, in hopes he would be able to return to help his teammates in the latter stages of the NBA Playoffs.

With the Celtics knocked out of action by the Magic last Sunday, the surgery was greenlighted and a full and hopefully complete recovery process can begin for The Big Ticket immediately. Here is the full press release courtesy of Celtics.com.

BOSTON – The Boston Celtics announced today that forward Kevin Garnett underwent successful right knee arthroscopy and removal of posterior knee bone spurs today at the New England Baptist Hospital. The surgery was performed by Team Physician Dr. Brian McKeon and was assisted by Dr. Michael Belkin and Dr. John Richmond.

“After this successful surgery, Kevin can now begin to focus on rehabilitating his knee, returning to top physical shape and fully preparing for the 2009-10 season,” Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge remarked.

Garnett appeared in 57 games this season for the Celtics averaging 15.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.11 steals and 1.19 blocks in 31.1 minutes per game. Garnett became the youngest player in NBA history to have played in 1,000 career games when he played against the Bulls on October 31, 2008 at the age of 32 years and 165 days. Garnett was named to the 2009 NBA All-Defense First Team for the second consecutive season and his 10th consecutive season of being named to either the First or Second Team. The Farragut Academy product was named to his 12th All-Star game this past season and his 12 appearances are second-most among active players behind only Shaquille O’Neal.

“I expect Kevin to return to active duty in full force and be that consummate two-way professional that he has shown all of us throughout his fantastic NBA career,” Celtics Head Coach Doc Rivers added.
