Shane Larkin is expected to need three months to recover from surgery for a broken ankle.

DALLAS (AP) -- Mavericks rookie guard Shane Larkin has undergone surgery to repair his broken right ankle.

The team says Drs. T.O. Souryal and Richard Levy performed the surgery at Texas Sports Medicine in Dallas on Tuesday. Recovery time is expected to be about three months.

The former Miami point guard was the 18th pick in last month's draft. He was injured Friday in the last practice before the team flew to Las Vegas for summer league games.

The son of Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin is expected to battle for the backup job behind Jose Calderon, who signed with Dallas as a free agent.
