Cavs in trouble – Hughes out long term

6-8 weeks. Surgery. On a finger. You got to be kidding me.

I don’t think there’s any way they replace his 16 points a game. Maybe you get more out of Damon Jones and Donyell Marshall, but I think this is going to come down to a Cavs defensive adjustment. Which is gonna be tough, too, because Hughes was probably the best defender on the team…maybe with Verajao coming back soon you pick up some defense, but geez. You lose so much…flow, chemistry, scoring, defense, penetration ability….ugh. This will be a very difficult injury to deal with. Could make a huge difference in seeding.

And of course, now Lebron Has to pick up much of the slack.
