Former Wildcat out 4-6 weeks with injury

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Orlando Magic backup guard Keith Bogans will be out from four to six weeks because of a broken thumb on his non-shooting hand.

He was injured during Saturday's game against Houston.

The 6-foot-5 Bogans has been the Magic's top sub during their strong start. He's averaging six points in 24 minutes a game. And his 36% 3-point shooting has helped open the inside game for All-Star center Dwight Howard.

With Bogans out, J.J. Redick, Anthony Johnson and rookie Courtney Lee will get more time backing up starters Jameer Howard and Mickael Pietrus (pee-AY'-troos).
