Out for season Left finger surgery Open link
Muhammad will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a ruptured ligament in his left middle finger, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. The recovery time is expected to be eight weeks. He suffered the injury when his hand got caught in Andrew Wiggins' jersey during practice on Wednesday, and it's surprising a decision on surgery was made so soon given he was able to play 13 minutes in Friday's win. Gary Neal and Chase Budinger will see additional run on the wing in Muhammad's place the rest of the way, with Robbie Hummel (hand) also in the mix when he returns to the active roster.
