Glenn Robinson III's rehab may drag on longer than expected.

The Indiana Pacers forward will undergo left ankle surgery that's slated to sideline him for two months, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

When Robinson, 23, suffered the injury during training camp, it was classified as a high ankle sprain that would keep him out of commission for about two months. The operation will tack on an extra two-to-four weeks to his recovery, and see him return around mid-December.

The reigning Slam Dunk champion averaged 6.1 points and 3.6 rebounds in 20.7 minutes last season.
