Breakers okay with Penney

11:01 am on 12 November 2010

CJ Bruton will play his 400th game in the Australian National Basketball League tonight when the New Zealand Breakers play the 36ers in Adelaide.

The veteran point guard's in his third season with the Breakers after moving from Brisbane when the Bullets collapsed in 2008.

The Breakers top the league with four wins from four matches, despite missing another star shooter Kirk Penney at the start of the season when he was trialling for the NBA again.

Penney's going to his brother's wedding this weekend and will also miss Sunday night's match in Perth but Bruton says they've shown they can handle a tough road trip without him,
