Steve Nash said on Monday that the sharpshooter will have surgery on his left ankle, which the team hopes will leave his foot problem behind.

Nash said that Harris will return this season, and expects to miss 4-8 weeks, by ESPN,


“We think it’s a really positive thing that can put this situation behind him in the long run rather than risking the uncertainty with reoccurrence or injury,” Nash said during practice in Brooklyn.

Nash said the surgery would address “a tiny bone particle” that was not healing as expected.

“We thought it would potentially sort itself out, as it has been there, but it hasn’t,” the Nets coach said a day before hosting the Knicks. “So we made a firm decision, and hopefully that will come to an end.”
