TORONTO (AP)-Raptors forward Jorge Garbajosa plans to have more surgery on his left leg and ankle and will be out indefinitely.
The Raptors said Monday that the decision was made after Garbajosa met with a specialist in Baltimore on Monday.
The six-foot-nine, 245-pounder broke a bone in his lower leg and dislocated his ankle while trying to block a shot in March. The injury ended his rookie season.
It looked as though he would be out until training camp at the earliest, but Garbajosa declared himself healthy to play for Spain at the European basketball championship in Madrid over the summer.
At first, Toronto barred Garbajosa from participating after general manager Bryan Colangelo said that tests showed his fractured fibula wasn't completely healed, but the two sides struck a deal after the Spanish federation agreed to insure his contract.
In seven games this season, Garbajosa averaged just 3.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in just 10 minutes 30 seconds per game.
He was then placed on the injured list on Nov. 20 after team doctors found ``something unusual'' in an MRI.
