Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Brooklyn Nets swingman Sergey Karasev will miss the remainder of the season after having surgery on his right knee, the team said Friday.
Karasev, who was injured Tuesday night against Memphis, underwent surgery on Thursday to repair damage associated with a patellar dislocation, Nets doctor Riley Williams III said.
Williams said 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."
The Nets expect Karasev to make a full recovery and to be ready for training camp next season.
The 6-foot-7 Russian averaged 4.6 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 33 games for the Nets this season, including 16 starts.
