Cavs’ Tristan Thompson to miss 2 more weeks with sprained foot
CLEVELAND— 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 for the 6-foot-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 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, however, 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.
