Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rashad McCants will miss four to six months after microfracture surgery on his right knee according to the Associated Press. It is the same injury that kept Phoenix star Amare Stoudemire out for most of this season.

Timberwolves orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Fischer performed the surgery in the Twin Cities on Friday, and the team made the announcement on Monday. Neither the team nor McCants, the Timberwolves' 2005 first-round draft pick, made the injury known before then.

Team spokesman Mike Cristaldi said McCants started to have soreness in the knee in May and it continued up until the surgery.

"It's an unfortunate situation because Rashad has been working really hard this offseason, and was looking forward to playing in the upcoming summer league games," Timberwolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale said in a statement issued by the team. "We expect Rashad to recover fully from the injury. He's a very talented young man, and we are going to make sure he is 100 percent healthy before he comes back."

Hopefully it won't but we saw how bad it was for Amare, let's hope it isn't as bad and he recovers quickly.
