Bogans, Magic's top reserve, to miss 4-6 weeks with broken thumb

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Magic backup guard Keith Bogans will be out from four to six weeks because of a broken thumb on his non-shooting hand.

Bogans was injured during the Magic's game against Houston on Saturday.

The 6-foot-5 Bogans, who has been the Magic's top sub during their strong start, has averaged six points in 24 minutes a game. His 36 percent 3-point shooting has helped open the inside game for All-Star center Dwight Howard.

With Bogans out, J.J. Redick, Anthony Johnson and rookie Courtney Lee will get more time backing up starters Jameer Nelson and Mickael Pietrus.
