According to the Washington Wizards, C.J. Miles will undergo surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot.

“Our medical team has done a fantastic job of proactively diagnosing C.J.’s condition and establishing a treatment protocol,” said Wizards General Manager Tommy Sheppard. “He will continue to be a positive influence on our team as he works through his rehab and we’re looking forward to getting him back on the court when he is healthy.”

Miles was acquired by the Wizards in exchange for Dwight Howard.

Miles has been known for his smooth lefty three-point stroke, but his role for the Wizards will be a player who more so helps in the locker room, as he is expected to bring veteran leadership to the team’s young players.
