Kendrick Perkins Injury Update: ACL Surgery on Wednesday

Celtics center Kendrick Perkins will reportedly have surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn ACL in his right knee, which may keep him out of action through the beginning of next season. Perk, of course, injured his knee during Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

“It feels good,” Perkins said. “I’ve been in trying to strengthen it up before surgery. I’ve been in with Ed doing a lot of leg work and stuff like that, icing it and getting a lot of the swelling down. Just doing a lot of treatment on it before I got to surgery.

Perk originally was diagnosed with a torn MCL and PCL in the knee, but it once the swelling went down, doctors determined Perk in fact suffered a torn ACL, which is a tougher injury to recover from.

The Celtics are reportedly interested in signing free agent center Brad Miller to help beef up the front court, especially with Perk’s suspected absence at the beginning of next season.
