Al Jefferson expected to miss 6 weeks

Hornets center Al Jefferson is expected to be sidelined six weeks because of a torn cartilage in his right knee, the team announced Wednesday.

Surgery is scheduled for Thursday.

Jefferson is averaging 12.5 points and 6.1 rebounds in 25,2 minutes while shooting 48.2 percent in 19 games. He had made two appearances since missing 11 games in a row, six to a calf injury and five while suspended by the league for violating the drug policy.
