The Miami Heat is down another man.
Okaro White, who started four games at power forward, but hasn’t played since Nov. 6 at Golden State, will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone his left foot, the Heat announced shortly before Wednesday’s home game against the Washington Wizards.
White (6-8, 215) said he felt his foot “pop” as he went up for a reverse layup in practice Tuesday. He has been ruled out indefinitely, a Heat spokesman said.
“[It was] like a freak accident,” White, 25, said. “I guess it was something that was building up and [Tuesday] it finally gave out... I heard it pop. It wasn’t like your bone is broken. It was kind of like you crack your knuckles. It was one of those kind of sounds.
