The Memphis Grizzlies, who have already lost center Marc Gasol, who was last year’s Defensive Player of the Year, have had power forward Zach Randolph sidelined at times and missed both point guard Mike Conley and forward Tayshaun Prince in their last outing, were officially dealt another blow on Friday.

The team announced that Quincy Pondexter officially had surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot.

This, of course, came as no surprise. Pondexter has not played since December 7.

The Grizzlies announced the surgery on their official website.

Memphis, December 20, 2013 – The Memphis Grizzlies announced today that Grizzlies guard/forward Quincy Pondexter underwent surgery to repair a tarsal navicular stress fracture in his right foot.  The surgery was performed today by team physicians Dr. Fred Azar and Dr. Drew Murphy at the Campbell Clinic.

Pondexter (6-6, 225) is out indefinitely.

Pondexter, who was the 26th overall pick out of Washington in the 2010, is averaging 6.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists in 18.0 minutes per game.  He’s shooting just 39.2% from the field, 32.4% from beyond the arc and 80.8% from the free throw line.

The Grizzlies continue to say Pondexter will be out “indefinitely.”
