Isaiah Fox Has Successful Knee Surgery
Dec. 2, 2003
TUCSON, Ariz. - University of Arizona men's basketball player Isaiah Fox had surgery Tuesday to repair an injury to his left knee.
Fox, a 6-foot-9, 269-pound, forward from Santa Monica, Calif., had successful surgery to repair the left meniscus. He is expected to be out of action for three to four months.
'Isaiah had successful meniscal repair surgery to his left knee,' said Randy Cohen, University of Arizona Assistant Director of Athletics for C.A.T.S. Medical Services. 'Because the meniscus was repaired and not removed, the normal period of recovery for this type of procedure is three to four months.'
Fox suffered the injury in the first half of last Friday's 78-77 loss to Florida.
Fox is averaging 8.5 points and 6.5 rebounds through two games this season. He posted his first career double-double on Nov. 24 with 15 points and 11 rebounds against Northern Arizona.
Seventh-ranked Arizona (1-1, 0-0 Pac-10) will next be in action on Saturday, Dec. 6, at Saint Louis. Tip-off is scheduled for Noon CST and can be seen nationally on ESPN2.
