Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left foot and ankle. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Richard Ferkel and is scheduled to take place at the Southern Orthopedic Institute in Van Nuys, California per the recommendation of Head Team Physician Dr. Richard Parker.
The surgery will effectively end Gibson’s season with a timetable set to be released following the operation.
In 35 games this season, Gibson averaged 7.5 points per game on a career-worst 35 percent shooting. He has a $4.8 million team option for the 2012-13 season with the Cavaliers expected to address their wing positions this coming off-season.
