CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Bobcats announced that center Brendan Haywood will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a stress reaction in his left foot.
The 7-foot Haywood missed three of the team's last four games due to left ankle soreness.
He had an MRI on Wednesday and a CT scan ordered by foot specialist Dr. Bob Anderson confirmed the stress reaction.
Haywood will be in a walking boot for the next four weeks.
He has appeared in 61 games for the Bobcats this season and has averaged 3.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 19 minutes per game.
