Foster Finished For Season

Now it’s official — RealGM reports

The Indiana Pacers announced Monday that veteran forward/center Jeff Foster will undergo surgery after the All-Star break for continued lower back pain. He is expected to miss the remainder of the season, but is also expected to make a full recovery and be ready for training camp this fall. The 6-11 Foster has played in 16 games this season, starting three, and averaged 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 points per game. The 10-year veteran is fourth in Pacers’ history in games-played for the franchise with 697.

That’s unfortunate. Foster would have been an excellent pickup for a contender in need of an extra big men. It would have also helped the Pacers to jettison his contract (or not signing him in the first damn place).
