Thunder Injury Update: Perry Jones undergoes surgery, to miss 4-6 weeks

The Oklahoma City Thunder fell just two games short of the NBA Finals in 2013-2014. With 11 players on the roster under 25 years of age, the Thunder are a young, upcoming team that should only continue to improve. One player that improved from his rookie season to his second season was small forward Perry Jones. But the Thunder will have to wait some time before Jones gets back on the court after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

Darnell Mayberry, who covers the Thunder for The Oklahoman, tweeted the following on Jones.
Jones, who was 28th overall in 2012 out of Baylor, is second on the depth chart at power forward behind Serge Ibaka. Jones averaged 12.3 minutes per game in his second season, up from 7.4 minutes in his rookie season. He looks to make continued improvement to become a more reliable forward off the bench in 2014-2015.

Jones averaged 2.3 points on just 39.4 person shooting from the floor in his rookie season. He improved his shooting percentage to 45.9 percent last season and his scoring average to 3.5 points per game.
