London: Andy Murray says he is unlikely to play again this season because of his hip injury.

The second-ranked Murray says he will miss the upcoming events in Beijing and Shanghai, and most likely the tournaments in Vienna and Paris after that.

In a statement released Wednesday on his Facebook page, Murray said he has consulted with leading hip specialists and said this is the "best decision for my long-term future."

Murray said he would still be playing in an exhibition match against Roger Federer in Glasgow on Nov. 7.
