CLEVELAND (AP) — Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson will miss about two more weeks because of a sprained left foot, another blow to the NBA’s worst team.
The team provided the update Friday (Saturday, PHL time) for the 6'10" veteran, who has been sidelined for the past four games.
The Cavs (9-40) have lost five straight and 17-of-18 entering Friday’s (Saturday, PHL time) home game against Miami.
Thompson is averaging 11.5 points and a career-high 11.1 rebounds in 35 games. He has been one of the few bright spots for the rebuilding, three-time defending Eastern Conference champions.
The Cavs could soon be getting back All-Star Kevin Love. He has missed most of the season following foot surgery but continues to progress and is doing more on-court rehab.
