=== Pippen has surgery, out 4-6 weeks ===

Deerfield, IL (Sports Network) – Bulls forward Scottie Pippen had successful
arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday and will miss four-to-six weeks.

Pippen has missed eight of the Bulls’ first 20 games, seven of which were due
to pain and swelling in his left knee.

The 38-year old forward missed 17 games last season with Portland after having
arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. This past Friday was already the 10th
game Pippen has missed this year.

Last summer the forward signed a two-year, $10 million contract with Chicago.

Pippen was averaging 7.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.25 steals in 22.3 minutes
this season.

In his 17-year career, Pippen has averaged 16.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per
game.
