STEVE BLAKE UNDERGOES SUCCESSFUL ARTHROSCOPIC SHOULDER SURGERY

PORTLAND, Ore. - Trail Blazers guard Steve Blake underwent successful arthroscopic shoulder surgery, the Portland Trail Blazers announced today. His recovery time is expected to be 6-8 weeks.

Blake separated his right shoulder trying to fight through a screen in the second quarter of Portland's game at Philadelphia on January 14, sidelining the guard for five games. He returned to action on January 26 at the Los Angeles Clippers and re-aggravated the injury in the second quarter, forcing him to miss an additional eight games.

Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache performed the surgery at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles.

All jokes aside, here's to a quick and painless rehab.
