Bobcats' Najera out 6-8 weeks after knee surgery

Charlotte Bobcats forward Eduardo Najera is 8 weeks after undergoing surgery on his left knee Friday morning.

Najera had surgery to repair a cartilage tear, which was discovered during an MRI exam earlier this week. Team physician Dr. Glenn Perry performed the procedure at Midtown Medical Plaza in Charlotte.

Najera, 35, appeared in 31 games for the Bobcats last season, averaging 2.2 points and 1.4 rebounds in 12 minutes per contest.
