NORTH MELBOURNE forward Majak Daw's season is over.

Daw will have a knee reconstruction on his PCL on Friday afternoon, which will sideline him for up to six months.

The 22-year-old has been managing a knee issue for most of the year but North's medical team made the call to have the surgery to ensure the problem did not worsen.

The club hopes he will resume full training in February.

Daw made a spectacular senior debut for the Kangaroos in round four against the Brisbane Lions, booting a goal with his first kick in football.

He then followed up with a career-high six goals against the Western Bulldogs in round seven.

The Sudanese-born star lost his place in the senior team after the Kangaroos' heartbreaking one-point loss to Adelaide in round nine, but has been a significant contributor for Werribee in the VFL since.

He booted four goals for Werribee last weekend, suggesting he was a chance to regain his place in the side for this week's game against Essendon.

The Kangaroos committed long-term to Daw when they re-signed him until the end of 2015 in July.

He could have played out the year, but the timing of the surgery was deemed necessary by the club's doctors this week.
