The Detroit Pistons announced Wednesday that guard Khyri Thomas had surgery to repair the fifth metatarsal in his right foot. 

The team said his rehab will begin immediately and that he will be re-evaluated in six weeks. 

Thomas had missed the past two games with a right foot stress reaction. He was added to the league's injury report before Monday night's loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, so it's not clear when he suffered the injury.

The 38th overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft, Thomas has played in just two games this season, making one free throw in six total minutes. As a rookie, he averaged 2.3 points in 26 games. 

The Pistons considered trading Thomas before the season in an effort to retain Christian Wood and Joe Johnson, but Johnson was waived when he revealed he had a sore Achilles. 

The Pistons (4-8) have been plagued by injuries this season.

All-Star Blake Griffin has missed 11 of 12 games rehabbing a sore left knee and hamstring. After a hot start, Derrick Rose has missed four of the past five games with a sore right hamstring, and Reggie Jackson is out indefinitely with a stress reaction in his lower back.

All three missed Tuesday night's loss at Miami as the Pistons have dropped three straight.
