Milwaukee Bucks center Pau Gasol will miss the remainder of the playoffs after undergoing surgery Thursday to repair a navicular stress fracture in his left foot, the team announced Friday.

Gasol missed 26 games earlier this season with a stress fracture in his foot.

Gasol, 38, joined Milwaukee after reaching a buyout agreement with the San Antonio Spurs in February, but played in only three games for the Bucks. Milwaukee viewed Gasol as a veteran with playoff success who could help prepare the team for the rigors of the postseason.

Gasol averaged a career-low 3.9 points and 4.6 rebounds in 30 games this season.

The Bucks have advanced to the Eastern Conference finals and await the winner of Sunday’s Game 7 between the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers.
