Webber was injured in Game 2 loss to the Mavs
DALLAS -- Forward Chris Webber postponed knee surgery in hopes of playing in the NBA Finals. Now that the Sacramento Kings are eliminated, he expects to have the operation within a week.
Webber, injured in Game 2, said following a 112-99 knockout loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night that he's finalizing plans to repair the torn lateral meniscus in his left knee.
"The next step is surgery as soon as possible, start rehabbing and getting ready for next year,'' he said. "One month, two months. No matter how long it takes, I want to make sure I do it right.''
