The Portland Trail Blazers have announced that guard Allen Crabbe will undergo foot surgery this week. From their press release:
Portland Trail Blazers guard Allen Crabbe will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a stress reaction of the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot, it was announced today by president of basketball operations Neil Olshey.
The surgery will be performed by Dr. Martin O’Malley at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
Crabbe averaged 10.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game for the Blazers this year, hitting 44.4% of his three-point shots along the way. In July he will enter the second year of a 4-year, $75 million contract signed last summer.
