Larry Hughes’ return to action is near. He could return within 2 weeks. He’s no longer in a cast and he’s no longer wearing a brace. Hughes has started taking short jumpers and ball-handling drills.
“I’m feeling good right now,” Hughes said. “Everything is feeling good. As soon as I get cleared I’ll be ready to go.” Hughes has been out of action since the end of December and he’s more than ready to play. Before the injury, Hughes was averaging 16.2 points per game.
Flip Murray, Hughes replacement since being acquired from Seattle has played in 14 games for the Cavaliers, starting 12 of them and has averaged 13.9 points per game. Mike Brown will once again have to make some adjustments and rotation decisions when Larry returns.
