Kings lose Khazzouh to injury

6:02 am on 16 March 2011

The Sydney Kings have suffered a big injury blow before tomorrow night's Australian National Basketball league match against the New Zealand Breakers with Julian Khazzouh straining a groin muscle.

Veteran Ben Knight will take the star centre's place at the North Shore Events Centre while the Kings will again be without versatile Graeme Dann, who has a knee injury.

Khazzouh leads the league in rebounds per game (10.2) and fourth in scoring (17.6)

The Kings have won seven of their last ten games to climb off the bottom of the ladder following 14 straight losses and a 1-14 start to the season.
