WASHINGTON (AP) Wizards forward C.J. Miles will undergo surgery for a stress fracture in his left foot.
The team says the operation is set for Thursday in New York and he is expected to be re-evaluated in six weeks.
Washington acquired Miles from the Memphis Grizzlies this summer for center Dwight Howard. New general manager Tommy Sheppard says the Wizards' medical team has done a "fantastic job of proactively diagnosing C.J.'s condition and establishing a treatment protocol."
The 32-year-old veteran averaged 6.4 assists a game last season with Toronto and Memphis. Miles played 838 regular-season NBA games for five teams before joining the Wizards.
