Moon to have hernia surgery
Moon suffered what was diagnosed as a lower abdominal strain in Game 3 of Miami's first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks. An MRI exam revealed further problems, and Moon will have season-ending surgery Thursday.
The team said he will need two weeks to rest after the surgery, and will be re-evaluated at that time.
