Cleveland Cavaliers’ Tristan Thompson Out Weeks with Foot Injury

It doesn’t seem as though the Cleveland Cavaliers still run the Eastern Conference.

Already without Kevin Love, the Cavaliers have suffered another big hit in what has been a horrendous first season without superstar LeBron James. Tristan Thompson is expected to miss up to a month with a sprained left foot according to team officials.   Thompson originally suffered the injury against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night in the third quarter after landing awkwardly on Malcolm Brogdon’s foot.

“He’s been the anchor,” Cavs head coach Larry Drew said. “Everybody knows he’s a workhorse. When you’re going through tough times you need that workhorse mentality from everybody so you can work your way out of it. That’s what he’s been.”

In the midst of a tough season, Thompson has been one of the few bright spots, assuming a key leadership role on the team, while averaging a career best in points (12.0) and rebounds (11.6). Thompson also leads the team in 15 double-doubles on the season.

The earliest Thompson can return to the court is believed to be two weeks, although at this point it seems like a big reach.
