Knicks guard Larry Hughes to miss 2 games

New York Knicks guard Larry Hughes is expected to miss the next

two games because of a strained left groin.

Hughes, who is averaging 12.3 points a game, was unavailable

Thursday night against the Chicago Bulls and is not expected to

play Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers. He says he will be

re-evaluated on Sunday and does not see the injury as “being

anything long.”

The problem surfaced last week at New Orleans, and he played

through it on Tuesday, scoring eight points in a 94-87 loss at

Charlotte.
