U.S. skier Lindsey Vonn out of Thursday's giant slalom
Vonn had surgery Tuesday to repair an injury to her right thumb and will have more treatment on that thumb in order to be better prepared for Saturday's slalom.
Giant slalom is the weakest event for Vonn, who never has made a World Cup podium in the discipline.
