CLEVELAND -- Bruised but not broken this time, Larry Hughes is again too hurt to play for the Cavaliers.
Cleveland's fragile guard, who has also endured personal misfortune in the past, will miss at least four weeks with a deep bone bruise in his left leg, yet another setback for Hughes and the defending Eastern Conference champions.
Hughes hurt his leg during a game Nov. 4 at Phoenix when he collided with Suns guard Leandro Barbosa.
I can't count how many regular season and playoff games that Hughes has missed. I'm sure the Cleveland LeBrons will be more than happy to be rid of his contract in...2010.
"Wocka Wocka...who wants to hear a funny-ass joke?"
That plus the fact that he has a history of leg muscle injuries (hamstring, quad) is a bad combination, since the two are so closely related. A bad back is not going to do his bad legs any favors and vice versa.
