Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Sergey Karasev has undergone successful surgery on his right knee, the team announced Friday.

The surgery was performed Thursday by the Nets’ medical director, Dr. Riley Williams III, along with Dr. David Altchek, at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

“Sergey underwent successful right knee surgery to repair damage that occurred in association with a patellar dislocation on Thursday night,” Williams said in a statement. “The surgery included the removal of several loose bodies as well as the repair of the medial patella femoral ligament and the medial collateral ligament. A full recovery is anticipated, and he is expected to be ready for training camp next season.”

Karasev, who suffered the injury Wednesday night against the Miami Heat, played in 33 games (16 starts) for Brooklyn this season, posting averages of 4.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 16.8 minutes per contest.

Karasev, the 19th overall pick in 2013, was acquired in an offseason trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
