MIAMI -- Miami Heat (http://www.sportsline.com/nba/teams/page/MIA) center Shaquille O'Neal (http://www.sportsline.com/nba/players/playerpage/6725) had surgery Sunday to repair torn cartilage in his left knee and will be sidelined four to six weeks.
The procedure lasted about 45 minutes, and was performed by team physician Dr. Harlan Selesnick. O'Neal injured the knee in a collision with Houston's Chuck Hayes last Sunday.
The 13-time All-Star averaged 14.0 points and 7.5 rebounds in his first four games for the defending NBA champions. He is expected to begin rehabilitation this week.
