INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Pacers guard Mike Dunleavy has had minor arthroscopic surgery on his left hip.

The team said on Thursday that the operation was done to clean up a long-standing injury and was not related to Dunleavy's rehabilitation of his right knee, which forced him to miss all but 18 games last season.

He also had surgery in March to remove a bone spur that had damaged the patella tendon in the knee.
