Bibby out six to 10 weeks

By Sam Amick

LAS VEGAS Kings point guard Mike Bibby has suffered a torn ligament in his left thumb and could be out for six to 10 weeks.
The Kings, meanwhile, have already had a rough start to their regular season before it even begins.
With small forward Ron Artest already schedule to be out seven games due to his suspension from the league, the loss of Bibby means second-year guard Quincy Douby will assume the role. According to Kings coach Reggie Theus, Bibby hurt his thumb during practice on Thursday but did not know the extent of the injury until mid-day Friday, when an MRI revealed the tear. The Kings medical staff has not decided which route to take with the ailment. If they let it heal on its own, Theus said it would put Bibby out for six weeks. If Bibby has surgery, however, he could be out 10 weeks. Bibby flew back to Sacramento on Thursday, and the team expects to know more in the next couple of days.
Kings center Brad Miller also sat out of Friday's game against the Lakers at UNLV's Thomas & Mack Center with a sore back, but the injury is not expected to be serious.
