Hughes to practice with the team today

Larry Hughes is expected to take part in a practice today for the first time since December, Brian Windhorst from the Akron Beacon Journal reported. Doctors cleared him Tuesday to resume full workouts with his repaired right middle finger. Hughes could return to games in a week or so.

“Everything is healed, it is a matter of keeping the swelling down and getting ready to play,” Hughes said. “I was cleared to do whatever my body can do, and it feels good.”

Hughes has missed 43 games with the injury; the Cavs have gone 24-19 without him.
