Toronto FC striker Jozy Altidore will undergo surgery Thursday to remove a bone fragment from his right ankle and will miss the team's final game of the Major League Soccer season.
Toronto made the largely expected announcement on Monday. The 28-year-old missed much of this season because of foot surgery and came out of the two previous games early with an ankle injury.
Altidore made 24 appearances in all competitions this season and had 13 goals and three assists.
TFC finishes its MLS season Sunday against visiting Atlanta United FC. The 2017 MLS Cup champions were eliminated from post-season contention earlier this month.
