Knicks power forward Kurt Thomas will undergo surgery tomorrow at Beth Israel Hospital on his dislocated right pinkie.
Thomas injured the pinkie in late January but never missed a game, wearing a splint on his shooting hand. He was diagnosed with a dislocation when he saw specialists in his hometown Dallas after the Knicks were bounced out of the first round in a sweep against the Nets.
According to agent Jerry Hicks, Thomas won't be able to shoot a basketball for two to three months. He postponed surgery until this week so he could attend today's luncheon banquet at Merrill Lynch that will announce the winners of the Kurt Thomas Investment Challenge.
