The news did not get better for the Kings Thursday night after the firing of Paul Westphal. Starting center Chuck Hayes went down with a separated shoulder in the second quarter against Milwaukee. From the Sacramento Bee:
Kings forward/center Chuck Hayes left tonight's game against the Milwaukee Bucks in the second quarter with a dislocated left shoulder.via Kings Blog and Q&A: Chuck Hayes leaves game with dislocated left shoulder.
Hayes was injured extending his arm and colliding with Bucks center Drew Gooden.
Hayes stayed down on the court for a few minutes before leaving the court with medical staff.
Hayes is just weeks removed from having a contract offer initially nullified by the Kings because of a heart condition. A second opinion from the Cleveland Clinic cleared him to play.
