Torn tendon in Fox's foot will require surgery

Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS -- Los Angeles Lakers forward Rick Fox will miss the rest of the postseason with a torn tendon in his left foot that will require surgery.

An MRI test done Monday before the team departed Los Angeles revealed the damage. There was no estimated timetable for Fox's return.

Fox hasn't decided yet when he'll have the operation, team spokesman John Black said before the Lakers practiced in Minneapolis. He was hurt early in the first quarter of Sunday's 102-97 victory.

Fox averaged eight points in the first three games of the best-of-seven series. The first-round series is tied at two games apiece, with Game 5 at Minnesota on Tuesday night.

Fox's absence likely creates more playing time for Devean George and Brian Shaw.
