Thomas got hurt while working out at his home in California. The procedure will be done Tuesday by the team's orthopedic surgeon. A timetable for his return will be set once they see how the procedure goes.

Thomas, a 12-year veteran, signed with Dallas during the summer. He spent time with the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls last season.
