OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City Thunder guard Nate Robinson underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

The team said Robinson first experienced discomfort in the knee following Monday's practice.

"After consulting with our medical team, we have decided this is the best course of action to resolve the issue with certainty, and have Nate back on the court as we enter into the final stages of the season," said Thunder executive vice president and general manager Sam Presti.

Robinson had appeared in just one game for the Thunder, who acquired him and Kendrick Perkins from the Celtics in a four-play deal last week. Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic were shipped to Boston.
