             === Bobcats' Haywood sidelined with foot fracture ===
 
 Charlotte,  NC  (SportsNetwork.com) - Charlotte Bobcats center Brendan Haywood
 will miss at least three months because of a stress fracture in his left foot.
 
 The  Bobcats  said Haywood will  undergo surgery next  week to have two screws
 placed  in the bone to help it heal. After 12 weeks of immobilization, further
 tests will determine when he will be able to resume activities.
 
 Haywood  joined  the Bobcats  last season  after Dallas  designated him as its
 amnesty  player. He  averaged 3.5 points with  4.8 rebounds in 61 games, 17 of
 which were starts.
 
 The  33-year-old  North Carolina  product  has  averaged  6.9 points  and  6.1
 rebounds  in 794  career NBA  games,  including 548  starts, with  Washington,
 Dallas and Charlotte.
 
 A  first-round  pick in  2001, Haywood  spent the  first 8  1/2 seasons of his
 career with the Wizards, who dealt him to the Mavericks in February 2010.
