Essendon forward Orazio Fantasia has undergone a procedure on his knee on Thursday.

Fantasia was suffering from friction in his knee and Essendon Physical Performance Manager Justin Crow said the procedure was the best option.

“Orazio has recently had ITB friction that has been causing him knee pain and had a procedure today to address it,” Crow said.

“The intervention went to plan and following these procedures players usually take 3-4 weeks to recover.”

Fantasia booted 39 goals from 20 games for the Bombers in 2017.
