North Carolina basketball player Kenny Williams, who missed the final 14 games of the Tar Heels’ national championship run last season, has undergone surgery to repair damage in his right knee. The procedure was done last Friday. Williams originally injured the knee in mid-February, when he suffered a torn meniscus during practice. He is expected to be ready to participate when preseason practice begins in October, according to a statement issued by UNC on Tuesday. The 6-foot-3 junior 22 games for the Tar Heels last season, averaging 6.2 points and 2.2 assists per game. He shot 34 percent from beyond the arc and his 27 3-pointers ranked third on the team behind only ACC Player of the Year Justin Jackson and Final Four Most Outstanding Player Joel Berry at the time he was sidelined.
