SACRAMENTO, Oct. 10 (UPI) -- Francisco Garcia of the Sacramento Kings underwent surgery Saturday to repair a break in his forearm and ligament damage to his wrist.

Garcia, 27, will spend eight weeks immobilized in a cast and will miss at least four months of action.

Dr. Mark Lee performed the three-hour procedure at the UC Davis Medical Center.

Garcia, the former first-round pick, injured his forearm while working out Friday.

He averaged personal bests of 12.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 65 games last season.
