Jazz lose Miles to thumb injury

LONDON (AP) Utah Jazz shooting guard C.J. Miles has a ruptured ligament in his left thumb and will need surgery.

The Jazz say Miles injured his shooting hand in a fall during practice Monday at London's O2 Arena, where Utah plays the Chicago Bulls in a preseason game Tuesday.

The Jazz won't know how long Miles will be out until after the surgery.

Utah opens the regular season Oct. 28 in Denver.

Miles averaged a career-high 9.1 points last season and scored 16 in Utah's preseason opener against Denver.
