Chase Budinger Expected to Miss at Least 3 Months After Knee Surgery

by November 13, 2012

Chase Budinger, as expected, underwent left knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. According to Yahoo! Sports, Budinger won’t see the court for another three months, at the very least: “Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery on Tuesday, and a source said the meniscus was completely repaired and will allow for a full recovery for Budinger. He had averaged nearly 12 points a game for the Wolves this season, after coming over from the Houston Rockets for the 18th overall pick in the June NBA Draft. Budinger, 24, injured the knee on Saturday night in a game against the Indiana Pacers. With the knee expected to heal, Budinger is considered an intriguing free agent possibility for several teams – including Minnesota – next summer.”
