    Guard Jason Terry #31 of the Dallas Mavericks

    Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry is scheduled to have surgery Friday after taking an elbow to the face during a game.

    The Mavericks say a timetable for Terry's return would be determined after the surgery.

    Terry's left eye was nearly swollen shut when he left the Dallas locker room after Wednesday night's 112-109 victory over Minnesota.

    Terry was hurt with 4½ minutes left in the third quarter. He was called for a foul even though he was sprawled on his back with a bloody nose after took a blow to the face from Corey Brewer, who was dribbling toward midcourt when they collided.
