Millsap to have surgery to repair torn thumb ligament

SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap will have surgery Thursday to repair his left thumb, which was injured during the Western Conference semifinals.

General manager Kevin O'Connor says Millsap has a torn ligament. His recovery time won't be known until Friday.

Millsap's injury occurred last Friday when the Los Angeles Lakers eliminated the Jazz. He scored 15 points.
