Houston Rockets guard Gerald Green is set to undergo surgery on Monday to repair his broken left foot, an injury he suffered in a preseason game against the Toronto Raptors.

According to a report by Chron.com, Green has met with several specialists to ask for a second opinion before finally deciding to push through with the surgery. The timetable for his return will be determined after the procedure is done, but there have been reports saying he could miss the entire 2019-20 season.

Green was expected to be one of the team's key players off the bench this season. The 12-year veteran averaged 9.2 points in 2018-19 and he was one of Houston's best 3-point shooters with a close to 36 percent clip fro behind the arc.

The Rockets will likely apply for the disabled player exception for Green if he is officially ruled out for the season. However, since the veteran guard is on a minimum salary deal, Houston will only get around $810k if the DPE is granted.
