Powe has surgery

Celtics forward Leon Powe underwent successful surgery this morning at New England Baptist Hospital to repair a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee, the team announced.

There is no timetable set for his return, though he is obviously out for the remainder of the playoffs.

The 25-year-old Powe, who will be a free agent, injured the knee in the second quarter of the Celtics’ 118-115 victory over the Bulls in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series. He averaged 7.7 points and 4.9 rebounds in 17.5 minutes during 70 games in the regular season.
