Cavs’ Larry Hughes Misses Practice
Cavaliers guard Larry Hughes left the team on Wednesday to attend to a family matter and is questionable for the club’s game on Thursday night in Chicago. Hughes did not practice and did not accompany the Cavaliers on their trip.
Cavs coach Mike Brown said he didn’t know if Hughes, who is in his first season with Cleveland, would be back in time to play against the Bulls. Hughes scored eight points in Cleveland’s 110-85 win over Utah on Tuesday. He also drew his first technical foul after complaining about a traveling call. The 6-foot-6 Hughes signed a five-year, $60 million free agent contract with the Cavaliers in August after spending three seasons with the Washington Wizards. He’s averaging 16.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game.
