Hornets’ Al Jefferson Out Six Weeks

Hornets big man Al Jefferson will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee to repair a torn lateral meniscus. The Hornets announced that Jefferson will be out for six weeks following the surgery.

The 30-year-old is having a rough season as he is putting up his lowest numbers since the 2005-06 season which was his second in the league. Jefferson had missed 11 consecutive games due to a calf injury and five for violating the NBA’s anti-drug policy.
