Shawne Williams Injury: Nets Forward Will Undergo Foot Surgery Wednesday

The New Jersey Nets announced Tuesday that forward Shawne Williams will have surgery on his foot on Wednesday. Williams had been ruled out indefinitely earlier this month with shoulder, knee and foot injuries.

New Jersey Nets forward Shawne Williams will undergo surgery on Wednesday, February 22 to remove a bone fragment from his left foot, Nets General Manager Billy King announced today. The surgery will be performed at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan by foot specialist Dr. Martin O'Malley and Nets team orthopedist Dr. Riley Williams III. A timetable for his return will be determined following surgery.

The Nets picked up Williams in the offseason as a free agent. Williams has made 25 appearances for New Jersey this season. He's averaged 4.5 points and 2.7 rebounds per game in 20.6 minutes per game this season. Williams has not played since a loss to the Spurs on Feb. 11.
