The Kings announced forward Carl Landry had surgery to repair a torn ligament today in New York and he will be out four to five months. The surgery was performed by Dr. Michelle Carlson at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
It’s the third surgery for Landry since he signed a four-year, $26 million deal in July 2013.
Landry missed five games from Jan. 16-23 due to wrist soreness. Carlson evaluated Landry’s wrist and deemed surgery not necessary but the prognosis changed when pain remained during the offseason.
Landry has been slowed by injuries each of the past two seasons. His 2013-14 season was hampered by a torn hip flexor and knee injuries that required surgery and limited him to 18 games.
Landry averaged 7.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in 70 games last season.
