In addition to the procedure, World Peace received injections in both of his knees and said that he wants to take ample time to recover after describing the feeling in his legs as "good" but "weird" after the procedures.
The 14-year veteran has been a minor role player in the Knicks' rotation in his first season with his hometown team. World Peace is averaging career lows in nearly every major statistical category. As he battles injuries and age, World Peace has posted averages of 5.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 15 minutes per game.
World Peace gave a detailed account of his prognosis as only he could:
"I heal faster than some young guys which is crazy," he said. "I am not on HGH. You can test me. Like Floyd Mayweather said, ‘I'll take the test.' I don't do that stuff.
"I guess because I am sexy," he explained. "Most sexy people heal fast. It's true. It's a fact. Do your research. Do your research on if I am sexy or not."
