Guard will have surgery Monday

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Detroit Pistons guard Carlos Arroyo
broke his nose late in the third quarter of Detroit's 91-61 victory
over the New York Knicks Saturday night.

Arroyo, acquired from Utah on Jan. 21, was accidentally hit in
the face by New York's Trevor Ariza. He will undergo surgery on
Monday. Arroyo is expected to wear a protective mask when he
returns.

He is considered doubtful for Detroit's games on Tuesday and
Wednesday.
