Wizards’ C.J. Miles Undergoing Foot Surgery

Wizards swingman C.J. Miles will undergo surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot, the team announced today in a press release. The procedure will be performed later today in New York.

“Our medical team has done a fantastic job of proactively diagnosing C.J.’s condition and establishing a treatment protocol,” new Wizards GM Tommy Sheppard said in a statement. “He will continue to be a positive influence on our team as he works through his rehab and we’re looking forward to getting him back on the court when he is healthy.”

It’s not clear if Miles is at risk of missing training camp or the start of the regular season. The Wizards indicated that they’ll issue another update on his condition in six weeks.

Miles, who is in the final year of the three-year contract he signed with the Raptors in 2017, was sent from Toronto to Memphis at last season’s deadline in the Marc Gasol trade. The Grizzlies flipped him to Washington this summer in exchange for Dwight Howard.

Miles’ 2018/19 season came to an early end when he was diagnosed with a stress reaction in his left foot in March. Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington tweets that Miles didn’t believe there were any red flags with that injury when he took a physical upon being acquired by the Wizards. However, as Sheppard’s statement suggests, it appears Washington’s medical team discovered a stress fracture that needs to be addressed via surgery.
