OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -Sacramento center Brad Miller will miss the final five games of the Kings' season with a stress fracture in his left leg and a bone chip in his right elbow.
Miller, a two-time All-Star in his 10th NBA season, averaged 13.4 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists in a revitalized season after struggling with injuries last year. He missed three games earlier this season with other injuries, and he had missed the Kings' last two games with what the club described as a left leg strain.
Rookie Spencer Hawes was expected to take his place in the Kings' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Golden State Warriors.
