MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis forward David Pellom is expected to miss five weeks after undergoing surgery on his left knee.
Josh Pastner, the coach of the 13th-ranked Tigers, announced through a university release that Pellom underwent arthroscopic debridement surgery on Thursday. Pastner called it ''a simple and minor procedure.''
Pellom, 6-foot-7, had been experiencing knee discomfort from an injury he sustained earlier in his career.
The George Washington transfer missed the entire 2012-13 season with a wrist injury. He averaged 10.4 points and 6.1 rebounds per game for George Washington while ranking fourth nationally with a .685 field-goal percentage in the 2011-12 season.
Memphis opens its season Nov. 14 against Austin Peay.
