THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Forward Antawn Jamison underwent successful arthroscopic surgery to remove scar tissue from his right knee Tuesday in Los Angeles, the Washington Wizards said yesterday.

The seven-year veteran, acquired by the Wizards last summer in a trade with Dallas, had the surgery performed by Dr. Stephen Lombardo.

Jamison, who was an All-Star for the first time in his career, dealt with the ailing knee for the final two months of the season and into the playoffs, where he helped the Wizards advance beyond the first round for the first time in 23 seasons.

Jamison’s ailing knee forced an end to his then-league leading streak of 386 consecutive games when he was unable to go against the New York Knicks on March 8.

Jamison missed 11 consecutive games and 14 overall in a season that saw him average 19.6 points and a team-leading 7.6 rebounds.

He aggravated the knee injury during Washington’s second-round loss to the Miami Heat but didn’t miss a game.
