The New Orleans Pelicans announced Monday that Darius Miller suffered a stress fracture in his left foot.

Team doctors discovered the injury after Miller experienced discomfort recently. The former Mason County and University of Kentucky standout underwent surgery to repair the injury, according to the team's website.

Miller, who is expected to miss eight to 12 weeks, averaged 2.3 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists as a rookie last season.

If Miller's injury keeps him out that long, he have to sit out the Pelicans' pre-season game against the Washington Wizards in Rupp Arena on Oct. 19.
