Bucks PG Marshall undergoes successful surgery on ACL

BY foxsports • February 4, 2015

Milwaukee Bucks point guard Kendall Marshall underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The surgery was performed in New York at the Hospital for Special Surgery by Dr. David Altchek with Bucks orthopedic physician Dr. Michael Gordon assisting.

Altchek, who also performed Jabari Parker's ACL surgery, is the medical director for the New York Mets and a medical consultant for the NBA.

Marshall, who will miss the remainder of the season, tore the ACL in his right knee during Milwaukee's 95-79 victory over the New York Knicks at the O2 Arena in London. In 28 games, Marshall averaged 4.2 points and 3.1 assists while shooting 45.5 percent.

The 23-year-old was claimed off waivers by Milwaukee from the Los Angeles Lakers in July. Marshall, who had his contract guaranteed by the Bucks in October, is a free agent following the season.

A timeline for Marshall's return to basketball activity will be established at a later date, according to the Bucks.
