Andersen undergoes knee surgery
Andersen, a crowd favorite known as "Birdman," injured his knee last month in Game 2 of a first-round series against the Utah Jazz. He is expected to be fully healed in time for next season.
The shot-blocking specialist ranked sixth in the league in that category, swatting nearly two shots a contest. He also averaged a career-high 6.4 rebounds.
