Bucks’ Skinner undergoes surgery

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) – Milwaukee Bucks forward Brian Skinner
underwent arthroscopic surgery Thursday to remove loose cartilage from his
left knee. He is expected to be out of action for about six weeks.

In three games this season, Skinner has averaged 11.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and
a team-high 3.3 blocks.

Skinner, who was signed by the Bucks as a free agent in the offseason, spent
his first three campaigns with the Los Angeles Clippers. After one year in
Cleveland, Skinner joined Philadelphia for the 2002-03 campaign.

He was selected by the Clippers in the first round (22nd pick overall) of the
1998 NBA Draft. In 238 games in the NBA, Skinner has averaged 4.8 points and
4.6 rebounds.

The Bucks also announced that they activated center Joel Przybilla from the
injured list. The Minnesota product had missed five games with a strained
patellar tendon in his right knee.
