MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Memphis Grizzlies guard/forward Quincy Pondexter has a stress fracture in his right foot that will keep him out indefinitely.
The Grizzlies announced Pondexter underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed the severity of his injury. Pondexter, who is 6-foot-6, hurt his foot Saturday night in a 108-82 loss to the Golden State Warriors.
The 25-year-old Pondexter was averaging 6.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 18 minutes per game this season after signing a four-year contract extension Oct. 31. Pondexter wrote on Twitter that he still couldn't believe the news himself.
"But I GUARANTEE l will be back next season BETTER THAN EVER!! Joshua 1:9," Pondexter wrote.
Pondexter is just the latest injury the Grizzlies have had this season. Center Marc Gasol is out after spraining the MCL in his left knee, and Zach Randolph, Tony Allen and Ed Davis have missed games recently with minor injuries.
