Atlanta Hawks forward/center Al Horford had surgery Tuesday to repair a complete tear of his right pectoral muscle and will be out for the remainder of the season.

The surgery was performed at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta by Dr. Xavier Duralde and accompanied by Hawks team physician Dr. Michael Bernot from the Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic.

Horford will now undergo a period of rest, treatment and rehabilitation.

At the time of his injury, the 6-foot-10 Horford led the team in scoring (18.6), field-goal percentage (.567; seventh in the league), rebounding (8.4) and blocks per game (1.5; 13th) while adding 2.6 assists in 33.0 minutes per game in 29 games.

Horford was injured in last Thursday night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
