Suns’ Dudley may miss season’s start after toe surgery

Suns forward Jared Dudley is expected to be sidelined for three to four months after undergoing surgery on a toe ligament in his left foot.

The surgery was performed by Dr. David Porter at Methodist Sports Medicine in Indianapolis.

Dudley should return just before the start of the 2017-18 season, which is good news for a Phoenix team that relies on his perimeter defence.

Dudley averaged 6.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 64 appearances with the Suns last season.
