Chicago Bulls guard Cameron Payne will undergo surgery on his right foot and is expected to be sidelined until late November, league sources told The Vertical.
The Bulls acquired Payne at the trade deadline last season as a potential point guard of the future, and Payne had started the summer positively in his workout regimen and participated in summer league before re-aggravating the foot.
Payne has dealt with right foot injuries at various points of his two-year NBA career.
The 6-foot-3 Payne was the No. 14 overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft out of Murray State, where he solidified himself as a scoring and facilitating guard. He was traded to Chicago after a season and a half with Oklahoma City.
