San Antonio Spurs guard Derrick White has undergone left toe surgery according to a report from ESPN Senior Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

The third-year pro suffered a knee contusion during the NBA restart in Orlando earlier this month, and a sore left foot kept him out of a pair of games in November of this season, though it is unclear when he sustained this toe injury.

While San Antonio hasn’t offered an official timetable for his return, White should probably be ready to go by the beginning of next season, even if the NBA has yet to announce a set start date.

The Colorado University alumnus is also up for a rookie scale contract extension this offseason, a deal ESPN Front Office Insider Bobby Marks projects to be in the four-year, $52 million range.

Derrick White averaged a career-high 11.3 points per game in 2019-2020, and raised his production to 18.9 points per game on 46-39-83 shooting splits over seven seeding games on his way to becoming one of the breakout stars of the bubble.
