Steve Francis Having Season-Ending Surgery

Steve Francis's (1998-99) season with the Houston Rockets is officially over (well, it was announced two weeks ago, but I just noticed today). He's having season-ending surgery:
Houston Rockets guard Steve Francis, who has been sidelined since late December with what was originally diagnosed as bi- lateral quadriceps tendonitis, will reportedly undergo season-ending surgery.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the team is expected to make an official announcement concerning Francis' status Thursday. Francis visited a specialist in Colorado last week, and a tear in the quadriceps that would require surgical repair was discovered.

The Houston Chronicle says Francis hopes to be back next season.
