Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) - Matt Harpring underwent successful scope surgery to remove two bone spurs from his right ankle, Utah Jazz general manager Kevin O'Connor announced Friday.

The procedure was performed Thursday by Dr. R. Marvin Royster in Atlanta. A timeline on Harpring's recovery was not immediately available.

The Georgia Tech product averaged 8.2 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, shooting .500 from the field in 76 games, all off the bench last season.

The 6-foot-7 veteran, entering his ninth season and seventh with the Jazz, appeared in all 12 of Utah's playoff tilts this past season, averaging 6.6 points and 2.8 rebounds per contest.
