Bertrand has surgery

Illinois guard Joseph Bertrand had surgery on Friday to repair the labrum in his injured right shoulder. 

The injury forced Bertrand, who will be a fifth-year senior on next year's team, to miss Illinois' game at Ohio State on March 10. Bertrand returned to play in both of Illinois' games in the Big Ten tournament and both NCAA tournament games. No timetable has been set for Bertrand's return, though he is expected to be ready for fall workouts.
