MIAMI -- Miami Heat draft pick Robert Dozier is recovering from a broken left foot and is expected to be sideline for 12 weeks.

Dozier was injured June 15 during a workout at the team's facility. He had surgery three days later to insert a screw into the foot. The forward is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, provided the Heat invite him in for the preseason.

Dozier spent last season playing in Greece, with the Heat retaining his NBA rights. He was the last player taken in the 2009 draft.
