The club says Thursday that the April 16 surgery will repair cartilage damage. Opara had to be helped from the field after colliding with Colorado Rapids defender Jared Watts on March 29.
Sporting KC acquired Opara before the 2013 season. The 25-year-old center back has played 30 games in all competitions for the club over the last two years.
