=== 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.

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.
