  Details on Dee Brown's injury
Dee Brown fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot during the NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago. Sporting News writer Mike DeCourcy wrote that Brown caught his foot in an awkward fashion on the court at Moody Bible College's Solheim Center. He was obviously hurt, but it looked to spectators like Brown had only tweaked his ankle. He tried not to leave, but after running briefly, he took himself out of the game. Afterward, he was taken for X-rays and learned of the break.

According to The Athletic Advisor, fractures of the fifth metarsal (shaft of the small toe) are common in athletics and is similar to that of an ankle sprain. Posted by Hello

In the Chicago Tribune, Marlen Garcia informed us that Dee would have the surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital last Friday in what was expected to be an hour-long procedure. A screw was to be inserted to aid in the healing process. As of this post, no word could be found of how the surgery went.
