    ANN ARBOR, Michigan — Former Michigan standout Charles Matthews is dealing with a significant knee injury as the NBA Rookie Draft approaches.

    Agent Adam Pensack confirmed on Sunday night (Monday, Manila time) that Matthews tore his anterior cruciate ligament in a workout with the Boston Celtics and will have surgery.

    Matthews, who played college basketball at Kentucky and Michigan, is skipping his final season of eligibility with the Wolverines to enter the draft.
