Abdur-Rahim has season-ending surgery

Kings forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim underwent season-ending arthroscopic surgery today at the UC Davis Medical Center to remove bone spurs and joint lining from his right knee, the Kings announced on Friday.
The procedure was performed by Dr. Richard Marder, and it was the second time since June Abdur-Rahim has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Abdur-Rahim's recovery from the first procedure was never complete, as he missed the early part of October training camp and returned to action late in the preseason. But while Kings coach Reggie Theus gave Abdur-Rahim only limited playing time in the first few games, it became apparent quickly that the knee was not fully healed. Abdur-Rahim experienced swelling in the knee numerous time, and the 12-year veteran is believed to have had it looked at by at least three doctors.
“This has been personally and emotionally frustrating not being able to help my teammates,” Abdur-Rahim said by phone. “However, we all have different challenges in life and this one is mine. God willing I can find a way to still contribute and help my teammates while I work to get healthy.” - Sam Amick
