Larry Hughes Growing Beard in Playing Time Protest

 As a simmering Larry Hughes left the visitor’s locker room late Sunday night in Minnesota sporting a new beard, he said his facial hair growth was related to his banishment from the rotation.

When will he shave it?

"When I get out of jail," Hughes cracked.
Hughes’ release from coach Mike D’Antoni’s prison could occur this month — even if the Knicks can’t trade his expiring contract at the Feb. 18 deadline.
Hughes, who played a total of just 15 minutes in two games in January, is more ticked off than ever at his status and is hoping something comes down at the trade deadline in two weeks.
