SEATTLE — Seattle Storm point guard Sue Bird underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on her left knee Thursday. 

Dr. Michael Joyce performed the surgery in Hartford, Connecticut.

Bird said last week she had a "loose body" in the back of her left knee. Recovery time should be about eight to 10 weeks, which would cost Bird two-thirds of the season.

Bird will complete her rehabilitation in Seattle.  

There's no timetable yet for her return to the floor.
