Jason Terry out 7-10 days after surgery on face

Mavericks guard Jason Terry underwent surgery today to repair facial injuries sustained during Wednesday night’s game vs. Minnesota.  The surgery was performed by Dr. Neil Williams in Dallas.  He is expected to make a full recovery and return to basketball activities in 10-14 days.

Terry will not travel with the team to Chicago (3/6) or Minnesota (3/8).

Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News reports (via blog):

Whenever Jason Terry returns from his facial surgery, look for him to wear a shield as added protection, like Detroit’s Richard Hamilton.

“It’d be hard to believe that he wouldn’t wear something,” coach Rick Carlisle said, “but I didn’t do the surgery, so I’m not really the right guy to ask.”
