D.J. Kennedy has successful ACL surgery
By Kieran Darcy
St. John's senior forward D.J. Kennedy, who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the team's Big East tournament loss to Syracuse on March 10, had successful surgery on that knee on Wednesday.
Kennedy officially began his rehabilitation on Friday.
"I am happy that I was able to have a successful surgery, and to be able to finally start therapy to work toward getting back on the court," said Kennedy, whose projected recovery time is six-to-eight months. "I am looking forward to the hard work I'm going to have to put in to come back stronger and better than before."
Kennedy has aspirations of playing professionally, now that his St. John's eligibility is complete.
