After taking an elbow to the face from Minnesota guard Corey Brewer, Mavs guard Jason Terry has elected to have surgery to fix a broken orbital bone. After the hit Terry returned to the game and played the entire fourth quarter. The results of the hit didn't look good though. Jason had tissue in his nose to stop further bleeding and his eye was swollen so bad he could barely open it. According to a text message Terry doesn't expect to miss a lot of games, however, the Mavericks are now the #2 seed in the West and they are riding on a 9 game winning streak. Any time Terry misses will be difficult. Hopefully there will be other players that can step up in his place such as DeShawn Stevenson, who was acquired from Washington back in February.
