Pelicans rookie guard Frank Jackson underwent surgery on his foot and is expected to be out for 3-4 months, according to a source.
Jackson was drafted out of Duke with the 31st overall pick after the Pelicans traded a pair of second round picks to select him.
He first had surgery on his broken foot after the draft combine in May. He was originally expected to return and be ready for training camp that starts on Sept. 25.
But he re-injured the foot while warming ups, according to the source.
His surgery was completed Friday morning in New York.
The 3-4 month time table means Jackson would return at the beginning of December or January at the earliest.
The Pelicans also brought in Josh Smith, Martell Webster and Chase Budinger for workouts, ESPN reported.
Webster is expected to come to training camp, while Buddinger and Smith are still possibilities, according to the source.
While training camp is still almost four weeks away, most of the team is expected to participate in voluntary workouts beginning on Tuesday.
