Hughes out indefinitely for Cleveland

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) – Cleveland Cavaliers guard Larry Hughes
will be sidelined indefinitely with a high right ankle sprain, the team
announced Thursday.

Hughes left Wednesday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers in the second
quarter and did not return.

The eight-year veteran had an MRI and examination on Thursday at The Cleveland
Clinic and head team physician Dr. Richard Parker discovered the injury to
Hughes’ right ankle.

Over the next few days, Hughes will undergo treatment and his status will be
updated in the near future.

In eight games this season with the Cavaliers, Hughes has averaged 13.8 points
and 3.5 rebounds per game.
