Utah Jazz point guard Mo Williams will miss at least six weeks of action after discovering he must undergo surgery on his injured thumb. The Jazz originally declared Williams to be out "indefinitely," but the news tweeted by Bill Oram of the Salt Lake Tribune Wednesday night gives the starter a more definite timeframe for return.

Williams will undergo the procedure on Friday.

Williams injured the thumb in Utah's loss to the Miami Heat on December 22nd. He averaged 12.9 points and 6.7 assists with the Jazz before the injury.
