Hummel to have knee surgery

INDIANAPOLIS – Purdue forward Robbie Hummel has scheduled reconstructive surgery on the ACL in his right knee.

Purdue coach Matt Painter said Monday’s surgery was scheduled in Indianapolis and the standard recovery time is 4 to 6 months.

Hummel was injured while driving to the basket Feb. 24 against Minnesota. He ranks second on the team with 15.7 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

Painter said the surgery was scheduled fairly quickly because Hummel has regained some strength and range of motion, and the swelling has subsided.

Painter doesn’t expect Hummel to accompany the sixth-ranked Boilermakers when they play in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals Friday.
