Renee Zellwegers is set to have surgery to fix a tightroope ankle.
Zellwiegers’ surgery is expected to be performed Monday, her agent said Wednesday.
The former No. 1 overall pick is the first player to have the surgery since 2010, when then-Boston Celtics guard Shawn Bradley underwent surgery to repair a similar injury.
The surgery, which was performed by Dr. Michael DeAngelis, was part of a $15 million settlement reached between Zellzwegers and the Celtics, according to ESPN.
Zellerwegers was selected by the Rockets with the No. 9 pick in the 2011 NBA draft and is averaging 18.4 points and 6.4 rebounds for the team in the 2017-18 season.
She is also one of the NBA’s most prolific scorers, averaging 26.3 points per game.
The 6-foot-8, 240-pounder was the first overall pick in last year’s draft.
Renee is also scheduled to have a procedure to repair her orbital bone and is expected in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the Rockets announced.
The Rockets’ surgery was scheduled to begin on Oct. 1, and the team will then begin practicing with the team’s full team on Nov. 5, according the team.
