NBA Notebook: McGrady says he’s out for the season

Associated Press
The NBA notebook …
HOUSTON ó Houston Rockets star Tracy McGrady will have surgery on his left knee and miss the rest of the season.
The star forward said on his Web site Wednesday that the pain has been persistent and he will have microfracture surgery. He’s confident he’ll return next season.
McGrady is Houston’s third-leading scorer.
“It has been extremely frustrating dealing with the knee injury,” McGrady said.
ODEN’S KNEE
PORTLAND, Ore. ó Trail Blazers center Greg Oden will sit out Wednesday night’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies because of a bone chip in his left knee.
Oden was hurt in a collision during a game at Golden State last Thursday. He was unable to play in the All-Star weekend’s rookie challenge.
WADE’S DIVORCE
MIAMI ó Dwyane Wade sued his estranged wife and two of her lawyers Wednesday over accusations the Miami Heat star contracted a sexually transmitted disease through an extramarital affair.
In the lawsuit, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, Wade is seeking at least $50,000 in damages from each defendant.
Siohvaughn Wade said last month the player infected her with an unspecified disease in 2007. Weeks later, she withdrew the claim from the court hearing the divorce case for unspecified reasons.
That wasn’t enough to satisfy the 2006 NBA finals MVP, who said her allegations not only defamed him, but caused “embarrassment” and “humiliation” along with damaging future earning potential.
KINGS’ TRADE
CHICAGO ó The Chicago Bulls acquired center Brad Miller and John Salmons from the Sacramento Kings in exchange for four players, including forwards Drew Gooden and Andres Nocioni.
Sacramento also will get Michael Ruffin and Cedric Simmons in the deal, which will clear well over $10 million in salary cap room next season for the Kings, the NBA’s worst team.
RANDOLPH’S SUSPENSION
NEW YORK ó Los Angeles Clippers forward Zach Randolph has been suspended two games without pay by the NBA for striking the Suns’ Louis Amundson in the face. Randolph was ejected in the first quarter of Phoenix’s 140-100 win Tuesday.
