The Seattle SuperSonics have lost reserve swingman Mickael Gelabale for the remainder of the season after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
Gelabale was injured in practice on Tuesday. He underwent an MRI on Wednesday and team physicians confirmed the injury on Thursday morning. He will require surgery.
Gelabale played in 39 games this season, also having a brief stint with Idaho in the NBA Development League. Gelabale averaged 4.3 points and 1.5 rebounds in about 12 minutes per game, and had played better since being recalled from Idaho. He had a four game stretch last month scoring in double figures, including a career-high 21 points against the Lakers.
Gelabale, in his second full season in the NBA, is the second player Seattle has lost this season to knee surgery, joining oft-injured center Robert Swift.
