DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday morning.

Nowitzki has missed the last three preseason games with right knee effusion.

Nowitzki told The Fan’s Mike Fisher on Monday October 15th “I’m doing everything I can to avoid surgery,” after sitting out the Mavs preseason home-opening win over Houston. “I guess that’s obvious that I really don’t want it done now.”

The surgery was done at  Texas Sports Medicine by team orthopedic surgeon T.O. Souryal.

Nowitzki is expected to be back to on-court activities within 4-6 weeks.
