Knight Undergoes Surgery

Nov. 9, 2005

SPOKANE, Wash. - Gonzaga University senior forward Erroll Knight underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday in Spokane, but when he returns to action is still undetermined.

The procedure, performed by team orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Arnold Peterson, revealed Knight had crushed his cartilage on the femur in his left knee. Dr. Peterson repaired the frayed cartilage using the least invasion possible so as to speed Knight's recovery process.

"We don't know when Erroll will be ready to play," Gonzaga head coach Mark Few said. "Naturally, we'd like him to be ready by the season opener against Idaho, but that might be a little too soon. It's really a day-to-day situation. As much as we'd like to have him, we won't rush him back. We want to make certain when he does return he's ready to go the remainder of the season."

Knight has been hampered with the knee injury all fall, and the exploratory arthroscopic procedure was performed initially to assess the damage. The minor repair was done when the cartilage damage was discovered.

Knight averaged 6.9 ppg and 4.6 rpg for the Bulldogs last season, and is also one of the top defenders for the Bulldogs, earning WCC Defender of the Year accolades last season.
