Nets small forward Damion James will miss the rest of the season after undergoing right foot surgery on Tuesday, the team announced.
James had the surgery at Indiana Health Hospital in Indianapolis to replace a screw in his right fifth metatarsal. James originally underwent surgery to have the screw inserted in his right foot on Dec. 13, 2010, and missed 33 games as a result.
The 24-year-old started the first seven games of the season before re-injuring his right foot in Boston on Jan. 4. The team originally characterized it as soreness, but an MRI taken later revealed that it was much worse than previously thought.
James averaged 4.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Veteran DeShawn Stevenson has been starting in his absence, and will likely continue to do so moving forward.
