Metta World Peace: (Knee) Surgery Set for Thursday
Update: World Peace will have surgery Thursday to repair the torn lateral meniscus in his left knee and be sidelined at least six weeks.

Recommendation: World Peace, who sustained the ailment Monday, will soon embark on a lengthy recovery process. If the Lakers qualify for the playoffs, they must reach the Western Conference semifinals in order to have him at the disposal. Since the team's hopes are dwindling due to a variety of injuries, though, we likely have seen the last of World Peace this season.
