Temple swingman Scootie Randall had knee surgery Tuesday for a meniscus tear in his left knee.

It is unknown when the 6-foot-6 senior-to-be suffered the injury.

Randall tweeted after the surgery, "feeling better. And everything went well."

A Temple source said the Owls don’t have a timetable for when the Communications Tech product will be ready to work out. However, another source with knowledge who said the surgery was arthroscopic, believes Randall will be able to resume off-season conditioning in three to four weeks.

The Atlantic Ten’s most improved player missed seven games this past season with a hairline fracture in his right foot. Randall averaged 10.7 points and 4.7 rebounds on an Owls team that finished 26-8 and reached the third round of the NCAA tournament.
