Sydney Kings veteran James Harvey will spend at least two months on the sidelines after scans revealed he had broken his arm in a collision during last Friday's loss to Cairns.
The 33-year-old was forced out of the game in the first quarter after a seemingly innocuous incident.
A Kings spokesman today confirmed the results of the scans to thewest.com.au, with Harvey ruled out for 8-10 weeks.
The injury is a further blow for Sydney, who have lost two of their first three games and face a daunting double-header road trip to Townsville and Cairns this week.
Coach Shane Heal admitted the Kings don't have the depth to cover the loss of Harvey and is likely to begin the search for an injury replacement player in the coming days.Harvey had a horror run with injury last season and was restricted to just eight appearances for the now-defunct Gold Coast Blaze.
