The Charlotte Bobcats have lost center Brendan Haywood for the rest of the season to a stress reaction in his left foot.

A Magnetic Resonance Imaging confirmed the injury Thursday. Haywood missed three of the past four games with ankle soreness. He left Time Warner Cable Arena Wednesday on crutches, his left foot wrapped in a protective boot.

The Bobcats project his recovery time at two months.

Haywood came to the Bobcats in July, after the Dallas Mavericks waived him under the amnesty clause. He is under contract to the Bobcats the next two seasons.
