MIAMI (AP) - Miami Heat center Justin Hamilton is expected to be sidelined for about a month after undergoing a procedure to repair a common abnormal heart rhythm.

The team says a full recovery is expected.

Hamilton had a procedure Monday to repair what was diagnosed as an atrial flutter. The team says he will be sidelined for a few days, then go through about three weeks of non-contact exercise before returning.

He felt light-headed during a training camp practice and was evaluated, where the heart rhythm was detected.

Hamilton averaged 3.3 points in eight NBA games last season, seven of those coming with the Heat.
