Larry Hughes Will Try To Play Tonight

Larry Hughes will attempt to play through the pain tonight in Game 5. Hughes said at the morning shootaround that he expects to go through the same pre-game therapy routine, including the cortisone shot, and he will re-evaluate his need for the medication before Saturday’s Game 6.

Mike Brown said he would start Hughes if he is able to play. Hughes said the injury feels best at the beginning of games, and coaches know to sit him when his limping becomes more pronounced.
