Gooden out four to six weeks with left foot injury

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Bucks forward Drew Gooden will be sidelined four to six weeks because of lingering problems with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

General manager John Hammond says Gooden will undergo treatment on Wednesday in Los Angeles. The injury has already cost Gooden 21 games this season, including the last six.

Gooden signed a $32 million, five-year contract in the offseason. He's averaging 10.8 points and 6.5 rebounds in 25 games this season. Gooden used padding in his shoe to try to alleviate the pain, but was often limping in pregame.
