Toronto Raptors forward Otto Porter Jr. underwent season-ending surgery on his left foot, the team announced Tuesday.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Anderson at Bellin Health Titletown Sports Medicine and Orthopedics in Green Bay, Wis.

“This was a tough decision for Otto, he had hoped to avoid surgery, but ultimately a decision had to be made to ensure his long-term health,” Raptors general manager Bobby Webster said. “We look forward to his healthy recovery.”

Porter, 29, averaged 5.5 points and 2.4 rebounds in eight games this season. He signed a two-year, $12.3 million contract on July 6.

Porter has contributed 10.5 points and 5.0 rebounds in 512 career games (318 starts) with the Washington Wizards, Chicago Bulls, Orlando Magic and Warriors. He was selected by the Wizards with the third overall pick of the 2013 NBA Draft.
