Richardson To Undergo Season-Ending Surgery

by Max Rappaport Writer

Philadelphia 76ers guard Jason Richardson will undergo surgery on his left knee and will miss the remainder of the 2012-13 season.

The Sixers are currently scheduling a date and time for surgery, which will be performed by Dr. Jonathan Glashow of Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York.

Richardson started 33 games for the Sixers this season, averaging 10.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.21 steals in 28.4 minutes per game.  He recorded 40 steals with just 26 turnovers and would rank third in the NBA in steal-to-turnover ratio (1.54) if he qualified.  Richardson missed the past eight games with left knee synovitis.

Additional updates will be provided as they become available.
