Larry Hughes Out 6-8 Weeks

Larry HughesTotal Pro Sports – So much talent, but no luck for Larry Hughes.  He’s been hampered with injuries ever since he first stepped foot onto an NBA court.  Maybe it was best for him to stay a little longer in college?

If your thinking of drafting him ion your fantasy basketball team be very cautions as he is a band aid.  If you can get him as a third or fourth option be sure to take the chance on him, but don’t draft him earlier then that in you fantasy basketball league.


Team sources said Hughes would miss six to eight weeks after dislocating his right shoulder late in the third quarter of the Bulls’ 85-75 victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday night at Target Center.

Sources said it’s likely surgery would be avoided, although more tests will be conducted Thursday or Friday.

Hughes had scored a game-high 21 points with three steals before colliding with Timberwolves swingman Mike Miller with 3 minutes 27 seconds remaining in the third. At a timeout 11 seconds later, trainer Fred Tedeschi raced to attend to Hughes, who later had his shoulder popped back into place.

If Hughes misses six weeks, he would return Dec. 3 at Milwaukee and miss 18 games. If it’s eight weeks, he would miss 24 games — more than 25 percent of the season.

Hughes grimaced and wore a sling as he tried to dress one-handed afterward.

“It’s definitely tough because I was getting my touch back,” Hughes said. “I’ve had different injuries before, so I’ll figure what I need to do with rehab to get 100 percent healthy. I’m confident I can do that.”
