Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO -- Los Angeles Lakers forward Rick Fox, who'll miss the remainder of the playoffs, will have surgery on his left foot Monday in New York.

Fox injured his foot in Game 4 of the Lakers' first-round playoff series against Minnesota on April 27. He also has a torn tendon.

Fox will undergo a realignment of bone in his heel area and have the tendon repaired, team spokesman John Black said Wednesday.

He is expected to stay overnight in the hospital, then spend three or four days at his New York home before returning to Los Angeles to rehabilitate.

Fox expects to be sidelined at least six-to-nine months.

The Lakers played Game 2 of their second-round series Wednesday night at San Antonio.
