Miami Heat forward Okaro White underwent surgery on his left foot Thursday and remains out indefinitely, the team announced in a press release Thursday.
“White said he felt his foot ‘pop’ as he went up for a reverse layup in practice Tuesday,” according to the Miami Herald.
White is 6-foot-8 and has appeared in six games (four starts) with the Heat this season. He is averaging 3.3 points and 1.8 rebounds in 13.3 minutes per game.
The surgery to repair a fifth metatarsal fracture in White’s foot took 85 minutes, the team said.
The Heat have not yet released a timetable for White’s return.
