King Out at Least a Month

An injury update on senior Anthony King has him out at least a month.

Anthony King suffered a sprained ligament in his right hand in Sunday's win over Georgia Tech.

He will be out at least a month according to Miami head coach Frank Haith.

"He has some ligament damage and we will just see how it goes for the next couple of weeks," Haith said. "We are probably looking at a three-week period and we'll just see how it heals during that time and we'll go from there."

However, Haith mentioned January 6 as the next possible date for King to play in.

King is wearing a protective cast to immobilize the wrist and surgery is not expected to be needed at this time.

"We are hoping what we are doing with it in terms of immobilizing it and every day treatment trying to see if the scar tissue can build back up," Haith said.

King, a three-year starter, is averaging 7.9 points a game. His 9.3 rebounds per game is tied for the ACC lead.

Junior Raymond Hicks is expected to start in place of King.
