SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Chuck Hayes is expected to miss three to four weeks with a dislocated left shoulder, the latest injury to sideline the Sacramento Kings big man.
The Kings announced Friday that further examination on Hayes will likely keep him out until February.
Hayes dislocated his shoulder in a 103-100 victory over Milwaukee on Thursday when he reached in and fouled Milwaukee center Drew Gooden in the second quarter. Hayes lay on the floor writhing in pain for a few minutes, the arena so silent that his screams could be heard from the sideline.
The team previously said a heart exam on Hayes showed an abnormality that would require further testing and voided the contract he signed in December. A few days later, the forward-center agreed to a new deal.
