EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New Jersey Nets backup guard Jeff McInnis underwent successful arthroscopic surgery Thursday to remove torn cartilage from his left knee.

The surgery took place at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

The team said McInnis would start his rehabilitation immediately. There was no timetable for his return.

McInnis was injured in the second quarter of the Nets' 110-77 loss at Dallas on Saturday night. An MRI on Sunday revealed the tear.

In 28 games with one start this season, McInnis has averaged 5.3 points and 1.9 assists in 17 minutes per game.
