Report: Hornets' Paul to undergo left knee surgery


Posted Feb 1 2010 12:45AM

NEW YORK (AP) -- New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul will have arthroscopic knee surgery and could be sidelined for one to two months, Yahoo! Sports reported Sunday night.

Paul first hurt his left knee in a game at Golden State on Wednesday. Then, near the end of regulation Friday night against the Chicago Bulls, the All-Star went out of bounds to chase an errant pass and struck a camera on the same spot that bothered him two nights earlier.

Yahoo! Sports, citing unidentified sources close to Paul, reported that test results revealed a partially torn meniscus.

General manager and coach Jeff Bower did not respond to a text message from The Associated Press late Sunday night seeking comment. Hornets spokesman Harold Kaufman said he could not confirm whether Paul needed surgery until after speaking with the team's medical staff following Monday morning's shootaround.

Paul, who also missed eight games this season because of a sprained left ankle, is averaging 20.4 points and 11.2 assists this season.
