MIAMI -- Oklahoma City guard Shaun Livingston underwent successful surgery to remove staples from an earlier procedure on his left knee Tuesday.
“Everything went well," coach Scott Brooks said before the Thunder played the Heat in Miami. "It was minor surgery."
Livingston has spent nearly three years trying to recover from tearing three ligaments in an ugly spill during a game in February 2007.
"He's going to be fine," Brooks said. "They just said everything went well. They were pleased with what happened this morning."
Dr. James Andrews, who has worked on Livingston before, handled the operation in Birmingham, Alabama.
“Shaun Livingston had successful minor arthroscopic surgery on his left knee,” Dr. Andrews said in a statement released by the Thunder. “His knee surfaces and previously repaired ligaments look excellent. He should be back to 100% in a few weeks.”
It is estimated that Livingston will be out 3-4 weeks.
