Houston's Francis To Have Season-Ending Surgery On Knee Tendon

By  | 

HOUSTON -- Houston Rockets guard Steve Francis will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn quadriceps tendon in his right knee.

The 6-foot-3 Francis hasn't played since December 15th.

He's appeared in only ten games this season with three starts,
averaging 5.5 points and three assists.

The Rockets say Francis will have surgery February 25th.

Francis signed a one-year contract with the Rockets with an
option for a second year, returning to the city where he played
from 1999-2004.

He was traded to Orlando in 2004 in a deal that sent Tracy
McGrady to the Rockets. After two seasons with the Magic, Francis
spent two seasons with New York.
