EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (WFAN/AP) — The hits keep coming for the New Jersey Nets.

Forward Damion James will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to replace a screw in his right foot, the team announced Tuesday.

Nets general manager Billy King said James had the surgery earlier in the day at University Health Center in Indianapolis. Dr. David Porter replaced the screw in James’ fifth metatarsal.

James had the screw originally inserted on Dec. 13, 2010. He aggravated the injury in a game earlier this season.

The second-year pro from Texas averaged 4.9 points and 4.7 rebounds in seven games, all starts.

Brook Lopez, also out with a foot injury, has yet to play a game for the Nets this season.
