Sprained foot puts Thomp­son on the shelf

China Daily (Canada) - - SPORTS -

Cleve­land Cava­liers cen­ter Tris­tan Thomp­son is ex­pected to miss up to a month with a sprained foot, ESPN re­ported on Tues­day.

Thomp­son scored his 5,000th ca­reer point on Mon­day against Mil­wau­kee and has been one of Cleve­land’s most con­sis­tent play­ers this sea­son, averaging 12.0 points and 11.6 re­bounds per game.

The Cavs, al­ready strug­gling with a short bench, sub­tract a reg­u­lar with­out Thomp­son, who left Mon­day’s game in the third quar­ter fa­vor­ing his left foot.

Thomp­son said he was im­me­di­ately sore and swollen from land­ing on Mal­colm Brog­don’s foot, but in the af­ter­math of the game didn’t ex­pect the in­jury to keep him out.
