The news on Sonics second-year center Mouhamed Sene went from bad to worse.
He had surgery on Monday to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee and during the operation, doctors discovered a chondral defect and performed microfracture surgery, the Sonics announced today.
Sene will be on crutches for six weeks and will miss the start of training camp.
During a conference call today, general manager Sam Presti said he expects Sene will miss a portion of the season as well, which is probably optimistic. In some cases, players require a year to recovery, which could force Sene to miss the 2008-09 season.
At the start of the season, the Sonics had a gluttony of young centers with Robert Swift, Johan Petro and Sene and now the team has just one healthy center. Swift is recovering from knee surgery.
