Cavs' Murray Out 2 Weeks With Broken Nose

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers came home from a road trip with nine straight losses and two broken noses.

Lamond Murray, the Cavs' leading scorer, was placed on the injured list Monday after undergoing surgery and will be out for two weeks.

Murray broke his nose in a loss Saturday night against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Cavs activated guard Trajan Langdon to replace Murray, who was accidentally elbowed by Los Angeles' Darius Miles in the Clippers' 109-103 win.

Cleveland went 0-6 on the road trip, which got off to a bad start when center Zydrunas Ilgauskas' nose was broken during the trip's second game in Seattle.

Ilgauskas has continued to play wearing a protective mask, but Murray's break was more severe and had to be reset with surgery.

Murray is averaging a career-high 16.6 points per game for the Cavs, who play host to the Miami Heat on Monday night.

Langdon has been on the injured list since Jan. 4 with a sprained ankle.
