Oakland, California:

Golden State Warriors backup center Kwame Brown is recovering from surgery on his chest muscle that will likely sideline the former No. 1 overall pick for the rest of the season.

The procedure to repair his right pectoralis major was performed on Wednesday by Dr. Neal ElAttrache at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthpaedic Clinic in Los Angeles. The large chest muscle attaches to the right shoulder.

Brown will remain in Southern California doing rehab before returning to the Bay Area next week. The Warriors say the injury will sideline Brown for at least three months.

He was injured in a victory over the Miami Heat on January 10. In nine games this season, Brown averaged 6.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in 20.8 minutes.

The Washington Wizards selected Brown with the top pick in 2001.
