The Cavs can ill afford to catch the injury bug:
Leon Powe, the backup center/forward, had surgery on his right knee today to repair a meniscus tear.
Powe had played in Wednesday’s game against Toronto, but was on the injury list Thursday with a bruised knee. He underwent an MRI Friday, which revealed the tear.
The Cavs release said is expected to be out approximately six weeks.
Ugh. Not that Powe has a huge role on this team, but the Cavs are already without Boobie, Joey Graham and Anderson Varejao.
This season seems to be spiraling out of control, no?
