Rodrigue Beaubois Needs Surgery To Insert Pin In Broken Foot

Dallas Mavericks guard Rodrigue Beaubois is set to have surgery on the foot he broke during preparations for this summer’s World Championships, where Beaubois was set to play for France.

Jeff Caplan of ESPNDallas.com reports that the procedure, which will insert a pin into his left foot, is expected to keep him off the court for two or three months.

“We’re going to do it right so it’s not a recurring type of situation,” said Donnie Nelson, Mavs president of basketball operations. “It just depends on the healing process. When his foot is fully healed, we’ll let him back on the court, and not until then.”

“His prognosis is really good,” Nelson said. “He’ll miss some time, but he’ll be back healthy as a horse.”

“The national team was a nice-to, not a need-to,” Nelson said. “We all saw what Roddy was capable of last year. It would have been nice, but injuries happen in sports and you can’t control them.”

Bryan Gutierrez of Mavs Moneyball has more on the injury and how it will influence Dallas’s rotation next season.
