SEATTLE (AP) -SuperSonics' center Robert Swift had yet another setback in his recovery from major knee surgery a year ago, tearing the meniscus in his right knee.
Swift had an MRI on Friday and the team announced the results in the fourth quarter of the Sonics' 99-87 win over Portland. Swift was injured during Thursday night's game in Portland.
``Robert is an important part of the Sonics, and we will continue to support him throughout this rehabilitation process,'' Sonics' GM Sam Presti said.
Swift, who Seattle took with the 12th pick in the 2004 draft, missed the entire 2006-07 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. His rehab has been filled with setbacks, and he's played in just eight games this season. But was Swift was expected to get significant playing time over the final two months so Seattle could evaluate his role in the Sonics future plans.
Swift will get a second opinion on the injury from Dr. Steve Lombardo in Los Angeles. There has been no treatment plan determined yet.
``It's horrible news for him and it's not good for us because we want to play him, we want to get a look at him,'' Seattle coach P.J. Carlesimo said
