Memphis Grizzlies swingman Dillon Brooks will undergo surgery to repair a ruptured ligament in his big right toe, the team announced. He's likely to miss the remainder of the season, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.
The Grizzlies said an update will be provided after the procedure.
Brooks took to Twitter on Wednesday to offer thanks for the support he's received.
It's a significant blow to a Grizzlies squad that has lost 10 of its last 12 while falling to 13th in the Western Conference. Brooks missed time earlier this season due to a knee injury, but has been a key contributor to the team's second unit. The Canadian sophomore is averaging eight points on 37.5 percent 3-point shooting in 18 games.
