Barry has broken finger on right hand

SEATTLE -- Seattle SuperSonics guard Brent Barry will have
surgery on a broken finger and is expected to miss up to six weeks.

The nine-year NBA veteran injured his right ring finger in
Tuesday night's 118-116 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

Barry is averaging 10.6 points, 5.5 assists and 30.8 minutes in
40 games this season. He became the Sonics' starting point guard
last season after the team traded Gary Payton to Milwaukee for Ray
Allen.
