Dirk Nowitzki underwent surgery on his left ankle on Thursday morning and will miss the remainder of the Dallas Mavericks’ season, the team announced.

The procedure was a debridement of his left ankle performed by Dr. Eugene Curry and Dr. Daniel Worrel at the Carrell Clinic in Dallas.

The surgery is considered relatively minor and is not expected to affect Nowitzki’s decision on whether to return for a 21st season. Nowitzki has repeatedly said that he wants to play next season if his body is willing, and sources said those plans have not changed.
