Meeks undergoes successful surgery

UK guard Jodie Meeks underwent successful surgery to repair a sports hernia in Philadelphia on Friday. His rehabilitation is expected to take 6-8 weeks.

Meeks joins Patrick Patterson, who also had postseason surgery. Patterson underwent surgery in Charlotte, last month to repair a fracture in his left ankle. His recovery time is expected to take 4-6 months.

Meeks missed 20 games this past season -- six due to a fractured pelvis early in the year. Meeks came back to have a pair of 20-point outings (at Houston and against Florida International).
