EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Clifford Robinson had surgery on his left knee Monday, and there is no timetable for the return of the soon-to-be 40-year-old Nets forward.

He underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove torn cartilage at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, the Nets said.

Robinson, the league’s second-oldest active player, is in his 18th season. He has appeared in seven games this season, averaging 5.4 points and 2.4 rebounds. He missed the last four games because of the injury.

Robinson has played in 1,337 games, seventh in NBA history. He has career averages of 14.5 points and 4.6 rebounds.
