(10/11/2013) Bobcats center Brendan Haywood has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left foot, according to the Charlotte Observer. He is scheduled to have surgery which will keep him out for at least the first 12 weeks of the regular season.
Haywood was limited to 61 games last season because of a similar issue. In fact, he was shut down for the remainder of the 2012-13 season late March because of a stress reaction in his ankle. He averaged only 3.5 points and 4.8 rebounds while logging 19.0 minutes of game action last season.
