CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Washington Wizards leading scorer Gilbert Arenas underwent surgery on his left knee on Wednesday and will miss about three months.
Arenas had been experiencing swelling and soreness in the knee which he had surgically repaired late last season. After sitting out the past two games, Arenas underwent an MRI Wednesday morning. He underwent the surgery later in the afternoon.
Team officials say the surgery was a success and Arenas will begin rehabilitation soon.
The 6-foot-4 Arenas is averaging 22.4 points.
