Charlotte Bobcats center Brendan Haywood underwent successful surgery on his left foot, the team announced Thursday.

Haywood had two screws placed in the navicular bone in the foot to reinforce his stress fracture. The surgery was performed by foot specialist Dr. Bob Anderson at Charlotte Orthopedic Hospital.

After 12 weeks of immobilization, Haywood will have a follow-up CT scan to determine his return to normal activities.

Haywood turns 34 in November. The 7-footer was a first-round pick in 2001, playing for the Washington Wizards until 2010. He spent 2010-12 with the Dallas Mavericks and last season with the Bobcats.

Haywood played in 61 games in 2012-13, averaging 6.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocked shots per game.
