Brooklyn Nets reserve big man Thomas Robinson underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday after suffering a small meniscus tear in his right knee Tuesday while working out in New York, the team announced.

In a statement, the Nets said the surgery was performed Wednesday and Robinson is expected to be ready for on-court activities before the start of training camp.

Robinson recently signed a two-year, $2 million contract with the Nets that includes a second-year player option.

The Nets intend to play him behind starters Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young. Andrea Bargnani and Willie Reed are the other reserve bigs on the roster.

Rookie Chris McCullough is unlikely to play this season as he recovers from an ACL injury.
