Pacers Chris Copeland Out 6-8 Weeks

Chris Copeland to miss 6-8 weeks.

Indiana got a steal by signing the former Knick Chris Copeland this offseason, but it appears he will have a minor setback. The Pacers announced today that he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to remove a loose body.

The Pacers are hopeful that Copeland will be ready by the beginning of training camp.

Copeland averaged 8.7 points a game and shot 42.1 percent from three in the regular season last year for the Knicks.
