Hughes will miss rest of regular season

This sucks. Larry Hughes had to have surgery performed again on his injured hand. As a result, he will miss the rest of the regular season.

Hughes, the team’s second-leading scorer, was supposed to miss six to eight weeks after having surgery Jan. 6. However, doctors concluded last week that the finger hadn’t healed as quickly as the team had hoped. The team said he will now miss an additional eight to 10 weeks.

“If all goes well for him and all goes well for our team … he could possibly be back and participate in the postseason,” Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry said.

The Cavs should still make the playoffs, but this team will never gel if guys like Hughes are gone for so long. It will be tough for him to contribute in the playoffs. It will be interesting to see if the Cavs make a trade.
