Miami Heat center Omer Yurtseven will have surgery on his injured left ankle, the Miami Herald reported Sunday.
The 7-footer has missed Miami’s first 13 games this season and will have the procedure soon “barring a change of heart,” per the report.
A projected recovery time of three months would make Yurtseven eligible to return by March.
Yurtseven averaged 5.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 12.6 minutes in 56 games (12 starts) as a rookie in 2021-22.
The Heat signed center Orlando Robinson to a two-way deal on Sunday and waived guard Dru Smith from his two-way contract.
