Josh Pastner, the coach of the 13th-ranked Tigers, announced through a university release that Pellom underwent arthroscopic debridement surgery on Thursday. Pastner called it "a simple and minor procedure."

Pellom, 6-foot-7, had been experiencing knee discomfort from an injury he sustained earlier in his career.

Memphis opens its season Nov. 14 against Austin Peay.
