Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol will miss the remainder of the season after having surgery to repair a fracture in his right foot, the team announced Tuesday. Gasol, who averaged 16.6 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists this season, had the procedure to repair a non-displaced Type II fracture of the navicular bone on Saturday. The team said he’s expected to make a full recovery.
“Marc remains a cornerstone of our franchise and we are pleased to hear that the surgery went according to plan,” Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace said in a statement. “Marc’s determination and competitive spirit will serve him, his family and the team well as he begins the healing and rehab process from which we expect him to make a full recovery. “We are confident we will have Marc back anchoring our team next season and beyond.”
