Boston Celtics forward Glen Davis had surgery Tuesday to repair his broken right thumb after fighting with a childhood friend while riding in an SUV.

Davis is expected to sit out at least six weeks and the Celtics said he also could be suspended for his behavior. In a statement released by the team, Davis apologized to his teammates, coaches and the organization.

Davis signed a contract with Boston last summer that would pay him about $6 million over the next two years.

Injury report

Al Jefferson said he will play in the Minnesota Timberwolves' opener tonight despite battling Achilles tendinitis in recent weeks. . . . Charlotte Bobcats guard Raja Bell said he will sit out the first week of the season and is leaning toward putting off surgery and trying to play with a torn ligament in his left wrist.
