Grizzlies small forward Rudy Gay will miss the rest of this season after a second opinion on his partially dislocated left shoulder determined that the injury requires surgery.

Gay was hurt Feb. 15 in a game against Philadelphia. He’s had to sit out the past five weeks. However, the healing process hasn’t progressed enough to allow Gay full range of motion in the shoulder.

In a related Twitter, the Commercial-Appeal reported that they had been told unofficially that Gay could be out for six months.
