Kris Humphries out at least two games with abdominal strain

Kris Humphries

Kris Humphries will not play in today’s Christmas Day matchup vs. the Boston Celtics, and will not make the trip to Milwaukee tomorrow to face the Bucks, Brooklyn Nets coach Avery Johnson told reporters before today’s game.

Humphries underwent an MRI yesterday and was diagnosed with a mild abdominal strain, and will be re-evaluated when the team returns on Thursday.

Humphries did not play in Brooklyn’s 95-92 victory Sunday against Philadelphia, and Johnson said after the game that Humphries’ benching was a coach’s decision, not due to injury.
