DENVER (AP) -Nuggets guard Anthony Carter had surgery on his right hand Wednesday and is expected to return in about six weeks.

The 6-foot-2 Carter averaged three points, 5.5 assists and 1.5 rebounds in two games for the Nuggets last season. In eight years in the NBA, Carter is averaging 4.7 points, 4.7 assists and two rebounds in 364 games for Miami, San Antonio, Minnesota and Denver.
