Williams has successful surgery

University of Louisville senior forward Terrence Williams had successful knee surgery on Wednesday evening. He had suffered a medial meniscus tear in his right knee in a pickup game on Tuesday at the Yum! Center.

According to UofL, Williams' prognosis remains the same -- he will be sidelined 4-6 weeks while recovering from the surgery performed by Dr. John Ellis Wednesday at Jewish Hospital.

That means Williams could be ready for Louisville's regular season opener against Morehead State Nov. 22 in the Billy Minardi Classic.

Williams ranked among the Big East leaders in assists (4.5, seventh in the Big East), rebounding (7.2, 11th), assists-turnovers ratio (1.54, 12th) and minutes played (35.9, fourth) as a junior.

Williams, who averaged 11.1 points last year, was a second team All-Big East selection in 2007-08.
