Beno Udrih has season-ending surgery

Beno Udrih, who was acquired by the Miami Heat in November from the Memphis Grizzlies, will miss the rest of the season. He underwent season-ending surgery on his right foot, according to Yahoo Sports.

He underwent an MRI earlier today before having the surgery. This is more bad news for the Heat. It’s the second Heat guard to be lost for the rest of the season.

Tyler Johnson had shoulder surgery early this month.

The team is also currently without Chris Bosh, who is dealing with serious health problems right now. He had a health scare in his calf, which may be from a blood clot issue that cost him the latter part of last season. He even missed participating in All-Star weekend at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto because of this problem.

Bosh’s life was on the line last year. However, this issue is not expected to be that bad – but he’s still missing games, as the Heat must continue on without him.

Udrih, whose 33-years-old and was acquired in the Grizzlies and Heat trade from Nov. when Mario Chalmers was sent packing. He was backing-up Goran Dragić and was averaging 4.4 points and 2.5 assists per game.

The veteran has bounced around in his 12-year NBA career. He’s played for the San Antonio Spurs, Sacramento Kings, Milwaukee Bucks, Orlando Magic, New York Knicks, Grizzles and the Heat. He has a career average of 8.5 points and 3.4 assists per game.

Udrih and Jarnell Stokes was traded to the Heat on Nov. 10, 2015 for Chalmers and James Ennis. The Grizzlies also reportedly included Jon Leuer’s trade exception to make it work.
