MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Memphis Grizzlies first-round draft pick Jarell Martin has a fractured left foot.

The Grizzlies announced Wednesday that the forward from LSU injured his foot while colliding with another player during a workout earlier that day. Martin will undergo surgery Thursday, and there is no timetable for his return.

Grizzlies team physicians Fred Azar and Drew Murphy will perform the surgery.

Memphis selected the 21-year-old Martin with the 25th overall pick in the June draft. Martin averaged 13.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists in his two-year college career.
