OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins had surgery for a ligament tear in his left wrist.

Perkins was injured in the Western Conference finals against the San Antonio Spurs and played through the injury as the Thunder lost to the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. The nine-year veteran is expected to be ready for next season.

Perkins had surgery on his right groin last week. He partially tore the groin in Game 4 of the first-round sweep of Dallas, although Oklahoma City withheld the extent of his injury until after the season. At the time, the Thunder only called it a strained hip muscle.
