EL SEGUNDO -- Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Kent Bazemore, who was injured in Sunday's game against the Clippers, had an MRI exam on Monday that showed that he has a torn peroneus longus tendon in his right foot.

Bazemore will miss the remainder of the season and will undergo surgery to repair the tendon. A timetable for his return will be given at the conclusion of his surgery. 

The 24-year old averaged 13.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 28 minutes over 23 games -- 15 starts -- with the Lakers. He was acquired from the Warriors in late February for point guard Steve Blake and guard/forward MarShon Brooks.
