The Sacramento Kings may have to start the upcoming season without veteran forward Carl Landry.

Landry had surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist.

According to an email news release from the team, Landry went to the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York to have Dr. Michelle Carlson perform the procedure.

Landry hurt his wrist last season, and missed five games in January because of the problem.

The Kings say Landry had an MRI on the wrist this week, and it indicated the need for surgery.

Per the team news release, Landry “will begin rehabilitation immediately and is expected to be out approximately four to five months.”

That schedule could mean Landry will miss the Kings fall training camp, pre-season games and the beginning of the regular season.
