Kent Bazemore suffered a foot injury Sunday in the Lakers' 120-97 loss to the Clippers at Staples Center.
On Monday, the Lakers announced that Bazemore tore the peroneus longus tendon in his right foot.
The 6-foot-5 guard will undergo season-ending foot surgery to repair the tendon, after which a timetable for his return will be given.
Bazemore was acquired in a trade by the Lakers from the Golden State Warriors, in a February deal that sent Steve Blake north. Through 23 appearances with the Lakers, Bazemore has averaged 13.1 points and 3.1 assists, while shooting 45.1% from the field and 37.1% from three-point range.
The Lakers also brought in MarShon Brooks in the Blake deal, but the third-year guard has played a smaller part in Coach Mike D'Antoni's rotation, averaging 7.0 points through 15 games.
