CLEVELAND– Bad news for Cleveland Cavaliers fans.
The Cavaliers said doctors at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health examined Smith’s injury Wednesday morning. They found he fractured his thumb and needs surgery.
A timeline for his return will be determined after the operation.
Earlier this month, Smith injured his knee when the Cavs took on the Raptors. The team said he was diagnosed with hyperextension and his MRI was negative for structural damage.
The Cavs are 20-6, sitting on top of the Eastern Conference. Cleveland plays Milwaukee at Quicken Loans Arena at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
