Pistons wing Khyri Thomas will miss at least the next six weeks, as the team’s Twitter feed relays. Thomas underwent successful surgery on the the fifth metatarsal in his right foot and will begin rehabbing immediately.
Thomas has seen action in two games this season, playing a total of just six minutes. That’s a bit surprising considering the Pistons have seen a bevy of injuries in the backcourt early this season with Reggie Jackson and Derrick Rose among the guards missing time.
Thomas was selected with the No. 38 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft out of Creighton by the Sixers. Philadelphia dealt his rights to Detroit for a pair of future second-rounders.
