Dustin Braddick to Have Knee Surgery

December 11, 1998

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson reserve guard Dustin Braddick will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery Saturday morning, Clemson Head Coach Larry Shyatt said Friday. The native of Charleston, SC has been troubled by a sore knee the last couple of weeks. An MRI this past Wednesday revealed some cartilage damage in his left knee.

It is unknown how long Braddick will be sidelined. Shyatt will provide an update after Saturday’s game. Braddick obviously will not play Clemson’s game Saturday against UNC Asheville. The surgery will be performed by Clemson Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Larry Bowman.

Braddick has played in seven of Clemson’s eight games so far this year. The former North Charleston High School player has scored 19 points and pulled in six rebounds in 45 minutes so far this year. He has made 6-14 field goal attempts and is a perfect 2-2 on three-point shots. He had a season high six points in just seven minutes in Clemson’s victory over Kansas State on November 25th.
