Kendrick Perkins Undergoes Hip Surgery
Thunder center Kendrick Perkins underwent surgery Thursday morning in Philadelphia to repair the hip injury that plagued him throughout the playoffs.
Perkins had said just after the season that the injury would not require surgery. But after a recent exam, it became clear that Perkins would need surgery to correct what team officials labeled a minor issue.
Perkins will miss three to four weeks of basketball activities while healing from surgery.
