Blazers guard Allen Crabbe to have surgery on foot

PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland Trail Blazers guard Allen Crabbe will have surgery on his left foot to repair a stress reaction in his fifth metatarsal bone.

ESPN's Chris Haynes reported Crabbe will be ready for the start of the 2017-18 season, according to league sources. 

The surgery will be performed Thursday by Dr. Martin O'Malley in New York.

Crabbe missed the final three games of the regular season with a sore left foot. He played in all four games of Portland's first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors, but was ineffective, averaging 5.5 points in 23.3 minutes per game.

In the series sweep against the Warriors, Crabbe missed 15 of his 24 shot attempts, including 10 of 13 from behind the 3-point line.

During the regular season, Crabbe averaged 10.7 points in 28.5 minutes per game as a key reserve for the Blazers. He ranked second in the NBA in 3-point shooting percentage at 44.4 percent.
