C.J. Miles Has a Ruptured Thumb

by October 06, 2009

What isn’t known is how long Miles will be out of action; what’s clear is that he needs surgery: “From the beginning, the Jazz regarded this trip to Europe as their version of NBA jury duty. After watching C.J. Miles go down Monday with a ruptured ligament in his thumb, I’m sure they’re probably ready to head home. It’s pretty sobering to learn that a guy will miss the start of the regular season – and almost certainly longer – with an injury that happened on what was supposed to be a happy-go-lucky trip.”
