SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -Sacramento Kings forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim underwent cleanup surgery Tuesday on his right knee.
Abdur-Rahim, an 11-year NBA veteran, had loose particles removed from his knee, the team said in a statement. He will require several weeks of recovery, but is expected to be ready for training camp in October.
Abdur-Rahim averaged a career-low 9.9 points and 5.0 rebounds last season for the Kings, who signed him as a free agent in 2005 after he failed a physical with the New Jersey Nets because of his right knee.
He has a history of knee problems, but played through regular pain and stiffness during 80 games with Sacramento last season.
