The American was due to make a wild-card appearance for Suzuki in Malaysia but had to pull out after the third finger on his right hand re-broke at the knuckle, making it impossible to ride.
"Hopkins will stay for the remainder of the weekend to give his full support to team-mate Alvaro Bautista and the Rizla Suzuki squad, before he returns to America for further surgery and convalescence to repair the damage to his hand and enable him to make a full recovery in time for next season," a team statement read.
Hopkins added: "I am so sorry for the team and Rizla Suzuki, because they have given me such a great opportunity. It's heartbreaking and I can't express my disappointment.
"It's such a shame and I couldn't be more upset, but the priority now is to get it fixed and get myself ready for the 2012 season."
