LONDON (October 5, 2009) - Utah Jazz guard/forward C.J. Miles suffered a ruptured left thumb ligament during practice today at London's O2 Arena and will require surgery to repair the ligament, Jazz general manager Kevin O'Connor announced today. Miles was examined by team orthopedist Dr. Lyle Mason and is expected to return to Salt Lake City to have the procedure performed.
A report on the surgery and an estimated timeline for recovery will be provided following the procedure.
This just can't be happening, right? From @lockedonsports updates, it looks like he could be out anywhere from 7-9 weeks. And then how long does it take for him to get back into shape and into the flow of things again?
Maybe this speeds up a Boozer trade for a shooting wing? Or will the Jazz just stay pat? I think you know what they'll do.
Here's to a speedy recovery.
