Jazz's Mo Williams out six weeks for thumb surgery

USA Today/Associated Press—January 2, 2013

Utah Jazz point guard Mo Williams is expected to miss six weeks following surgery on his right thumb.

Williams opted for surgery after flying to New York to have a second MRI and meet Wednesday with Dr. Michelle Carlson, a hand specialist at Hospital for Special Surgery. The decision to have surgery was made following a consultation between Carlson and the Jazz medical staff.

After surgery, Williams' thumb will be placed in a splint for six weeks and he will be re-evaluated afterward.

He injured the thumb Dec. 22 at Miami and has not played since.
