UConn's Dyson hopes knee repairable

Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. -- Connecticut point guard Jerome Dyson is scheduled to have surgery on his injured right knee on Monday, and he doubts that he will be able to play for the top-ranked Huskies again this season.

The junior tore the lateral meniscus in the knee in a game against Syracuse on Wednesday.

"If they can go in and repair my knee, I'll probably end up missing the rest of the season," Dyson said Saturday while sitting on the bench before Connecticut played Seton Hall. "The recovery period from that is about four months."

Dyson said if the surgeons can't repair the knee, they would clean the knee out and he probably would be ready in four weeks. However, he said he would be hesitant to return because he hopes to have a professional career.
