Suns center Robin Lopez will undergo surgery to repair a broken fifth metatarsal in his left foot, the club announced today. The procedure to insert a screw will be performed tomorrow, Tuesday, Oct. 6, by Dr. Gus Armendariz at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix.
Lopez, who suffered the fracture during the second half of Saturday night's intra-squad scrimmage in San Diego, is expected to miss six to eight weeks.
As a rookie in 2008-09, the Stanford product averaged 3.2 points and 2.0 rebounds while appearing in 60 games.
