SEATTLE (AP) -SuperSonics center Mouhamed Sene had microfracture surgery on his right knee earlier this week, another setback for Seattle and its glut of underperforming centers.
Sene was originally injured on April 4 playing in an NBA Development League game for the Idaho Stampede. The injury was diagnosed as a lateral meniscus tear, but during surgery doctors discovered a chondral defect and microfracture surgery was required.
The team says Sene will be on crutches for six weeks and be continually evaluated.
Sene was the 10th overall pick in the 2006 draft, but has yet to match his lofty draft status in the NBA. He played in just 13 games for the Sonics this season, averaging 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds. He did show some promise in the D-League averaging 12.1 points and 8.9 rebounds and was the co-defensive player of the year.
Seattle center Robert Swift missed most of the last two seasons with knee injuries. Swift was a lottery pick in the 2004 draft.
