SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah Jazz guard C.J. Miles is scheduled to have surgery Wednesday to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hand.

Jazz general manager Kevin O'Connor said Tuesday that Miles will have the surgery in New York.

Miles tore a thumb ligament in his shooting hand in a fall during practice Monday in London, where the Jazz played the Bulls in a preseason game Tuesday.

The Jazz say they won't know about a possible return date for Miles until after the surgery.
