Detroit Pistons shooting guard Jodie Meeks will miss 12–16 weeks due to a broken bone in his right foot, the team announced Friday.

Meeks underwent surgery on the fracture on Thursday, after sustaining the injury on Wednesday night in Detroit’s 92–87 win over the Utah Jazz.

Meeks entered the 2015–16 season on the heels of a lower back injury that sidelined him for 22 games last year.

The 28-year-old signed a three-year, $19.5 million deal with the Pistons in July 2014, and averaged 11.1 points in 60 games last season.

The perimeter shooting specialist was drafted in 2009 out of Kentucky, and had a breakout 2013–14 campaign with the Los Angeles Lakers, averaging 15.2 points in 33 minutes per game.
