76ers’ Robinson undergoes elbow surgery

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia 76ers forward Glenn Robinson
underwent successful surgery on his ailing right elbow on Tuesday.

“We took out eight loose bodies in his elbow, in which half were in the front
and half were in the back. A spur on the backside of the elbow was also
removed,” said Dr. James Andrews. “This will improve his range of motion,
and depending on the amount of swelling, he should be able to return to
basketball-type activity in two-to-five weeks.”

In 42 games this season, Robinson is averaging 16.6 points per outing.

Robinson, who has missed 26 games this year, was placed on the injured list
on March 12.
