Washington Wizards forward Chris Singleton was scheduled for outpatient surgery on Wednesday to repair a fracture to the fifth metatarsal in his left foot, the team announced.
The recovery time will be approximately six to eight weeks. The Wizards open the regular season on Oct. 30 against the Detroit Pistons in Auburn Hills, Mich.
Singleton was hurt Tuesday during a voluntary workout at the Verizon Center. X-rays detected a fracture, which was to be repaired by team physicians Dr. Marc Connell and Dr. Ed Magur.
The 6-foot-8 Singleton averaged 4.1 points and 3.2 rebounds in 57 games for the Wizards last season. He played in all 66 regular-season games in 2011-12 as a rookie out of Florida State.
