I have a hole the size of a quarter in my cartilage, Richardson said. They told me that there is the possibility that if I dont do something about it eventually it will be bone on bone. I have a life after basketball and I have kids. So Im going to take care of it.

Richardson said he plans to have the surgery done next week in New York by Dr. Jonathan Glashow. Glashow was one of the examining physicians.

Richardson is making $5.8 million this season and is schedule to make $6.2 million next season, the last year on his contract. Richardson has said that he wants to play beyond his current contract.

He is just a standup guy, sucks... but it happened because he is a true competitor. I don't know how much reconstruction they can do, but I hope he comes back next season.
