CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The Charlotte Bobcats announced that center Brendan Haywood is expected to miss at least twelve weeks after being diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left foot that will require surgery.

An MRI and CT scan taken on Wednesday ordered by foot specialist Dr. Bob Anderson revealed the stress fracture in the navicular bone. 

Haywood will undergo surgery next week to place two screws in the bone to reinforce the stress fracture and help it to heal. 

Following twelve weeks of immobilization, he will undergo a follow-up CT scan to determine his return to normal activities.
