Just for the record, the player has final say on whether to elect Surgery, not the team. The team just gives the player the choices he has, and the prognosis for those choices. Such as you can have surgery now, and you'll be out for whatever. Or it won't get worse and you can try to play through it and get it taken care of in the off season. It was Richards decision not to do the surgery until after the Season. Not the teams.
