WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest freshman forward Devin Thomas had minor knee surgery on Tuesday afternoon, the school announced. Thomas, a graduate of Central Dauphin, is expected to miss 4-6 weeks but make a full recovery for the 2012-13 season.
The arthroscopic procedure cleaned up loose fragments in Thomas' knee. The procedure was performed at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center by team physician Dr. David Martin.
"This was a routine procedure to remove some loose cartilage fragments from Devin's knee," said Martin in a statement. "We wanted to be proactive with this to get him ready for the season."
Thomas gained national attention last February when he shattered a glass backboard while dunking during the Mid-Penn Conference championship game.
Wake Forest opens the regular season on Friday, Nov. 9, at home against Radford.
