LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -Kentucky point guard Derrick Jasper had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, but the school expects he'll recover in time for practice in October.
UK basketball spokesman Scott Stricklin said Monday he couldn't provide information about how Jasper hurt the knee. The procedure Friday was aimed at clearing loose cartilage from the knee and will sideline him through the summer.
Jasper started 27 of the Wildcats' games as a freshman last season. He figures to be a prominent member of Kentucky's backcourt rotation under new coach Billy Gillispie, along with Jodie Meeks, Joe Crawford and Ramel Bradley.
