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.
