Lakers forward Metta World Peace took to Twitter to announce he had a cyst in his knee drained.
"My knee is in really good shape," World Peace tweeted with a photo of himself holding a syringe filled with fluid. "The last two games this Bakers Cyst was tough to play with. Just drained it. Whoa!"
World Peace underwent surgery on March 28 after a left knee injury (torn meniscus). He was originally expected to be out for a minimum of six weeks but returned just 12 days later.
The Lakers are currently down 2-0 to the San Antonio Spurs in their first-round matchup. World Peace has struggled, averaging nine points on 31.8% shooting from the field -- 18.2% from three-point range.
