Yurtseven is expected to miss an extended period, and potentially the entire season, if he undergoes surgery to fix a bone spur issue in his ankle, Ira Winderman of The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Heat have been listing Yurtseven as out with an ankle impingement since the team's first exhibition contest. The second-year big man is an impending free agent, so he may opt for surgery to rehabilitate before the offseason. Even if Yurtseven doesn't undergo surgery, he is expected to face an extensive absence.
