Malcolm Lee is expected to miss about six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee on Friday morning.
The Minnesota Timberwolves said in a media release that team orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Fischer performed successful surgery on Lee, the rookie guard from UCLA.
Coupled with J.J. Barea's hamstring injury, the Wolves entered Friday's game against Miami short-handed at point guard. Barea is day-to-day and could return in time for Monday's game against his old team, the Dallas Mavericks.
