Memphis Grizzlies guard-forward Quincy Pondexter is expected to miss the remainder of the season due to a stress fracture in his right foot, sources tell Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Pondexter suffered the injury in the team's loss to the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night, and it was discovered in an MRI on Monday.

The Grizzlies have already lost Marc Gasol to an MCL sprain and Tony Allen to a hip bruise this season, although both of those players are expected to return to the court soon.
