There was good news for Tim Wittman and the Baltimore Blast last night after team doctor Joseph Ciotola performed arthroscopic surgery on Wittman's left knee at Kernan Hospital.
Ciotola found no ligament or cartilage damage during what Blast trainer Marty McGinty described as a "very simple, smooth operation."
McGinty said Wittman might be able to return to practice in 14 days and play in three weeks. That would bring Wittman back for the final five regular-season games after missing the next six games.
Ciotola "smoothed down the uneven surfaces on the head of the femur [thigh bone]. The uneven surfaces have been caused by wear and tear. The uneven surfaces have been what's causing Timmy the pain," McGinty said.
