The Milwaukee Bucks announced that Spanish center Pau Gasol underwent surgery on his left foot to repair a bone fracture.

Since recovery time for this type of surgery takes months, Gasol may actually miss the upcoming World Cup tournament that is held in China from August 31 to September 15. The Bucks mention that the Spanish center should be ready to join the team in next season’s training camp.

Per Bucks:

Milwaukee Bucks center Pau Gasol underwent successful surgery yesterday to repair a navicular stress fracture in his left foot. The surgery was performed in Green Bay, Wis., by Dr. Robert Anderson with oversight by Bucks team physician Dr. William Raasch of the Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin health network.

Gasol will miss the remainder of the Playoffs and a full recovery is expected in time for training camp.

A six-time All-Star and two-time NBA Champion, Gasol was signed by Milwaukee on March 3.
