Grizzlies’ Omri Casspi To Undergo Knee Surgery

Grizzlies forward Omri Casspi will undergo surgery next week to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee, according to a team press release.

An MRI on Friday revealed the injury. A timeline for his return will be determined following the procedure.

Casspi, who played for the Warriors last season, was signed to a one-year, veteran’s minimum contract in July and will be an unrestricted free agent once again this summer. The 30-year-old journeyman forward has appeared in 36 games this season, averaging 6.3 PPG and 3.2 RPG in 14.4 MPG off the bench.

Casspi has not played the last three games. His stint in Memphis hasn’t gone smoothly, including a scrap with teammate Garrett Temple early last month. However, he reached double figures in points in four of his last six appearances.
