Artest undergoes surgery

Kings small forward Ron Artest underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb on Thursday, the team has announced.
Artest, who missed five games due to the injury in the final two weeks of the season, had the procedure done by Dr. Michelle Carlson at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Artest will wear a removable splint for six weeks and return to full strength in approximately eight to 10 weeks.
Artest, who has until late June to exercise the early termination option in his contract and become a free agent on July 1, has been through this before. He had the same ligament repaired on Feb. 19, 2004 while playing with Indiana and returned after missing just five games. - Sam Amick
