Pitt sophomore forward J.J. Moore will undergo surgery for a fractured fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot after suffering the injury in a pickup game Friday.
The injury takes three months to heal.
Moore's injury is common among basketball players. It is the same injury that forced Levance Fields and Jermaine Dixon out of the lineup in recent seasons.
Moore showed up at the team's end-of-season awards banquet on crutches Sunday night. He was named the team's most improved player.
