Tristan Thompson expected to be out multiple games with ankle injury
Tristan Thompson will likely be out at least a few games due to an ankle sprain, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced on Sunday.
Thompson suffered the injury during the Cavs’ loss to the Denver Nuggets, 126-117, on Saturday. The Cleveland big man stepped on the heel of another player, and was able to keep playing. According to the team, Thompson’s ankle swelled after the game and made it painful enough to scratch him from the next couple of games.
Over his last 10 games, Thompson is averaging 7.8 points and 8.2 rebounds while shooting 60 percent from the field.
This will be the second time Thompson has missed games. In November and December Thompson was sidelined with a calf injury.
