Tristan Thompson Out 2-4 Weeks With Sprained Foot

12:04pm: The Cavaliers confirmed Thompson’s status in a tweet.

11:19am: Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson has a sprained left foot that will keep him sidelined for two to four weeks, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Thompson suffered the injury in last night’s loss to the Bucks, leaving the game midway through the third quarter. He told Joe Noga of Cleveland.com that it happened when he landed on Malcolm Brogdon‘s foot while chasing a rebound.

“I just fell forward on it, it’ll be all right,” Thompson said after the game. “It happens when you’re rebounding and the little guys are down there. It’s part of the game. I’m just glad I was able to walk off on my own two feet.”

Thompson had an MRI this morning that showed no fractures in the foot, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic (Twitter link). However, there is enough swelling to keep Thompson out of action.

It’s the latest bad break for the 6-21 Cavaliers, who were already short-handed heading into Monday. Thompson has been one of the few bright spots this season in Cleveland, averaging career highs in points (12.0) and rebounds (11.6) through 27 games.

    TT threatened the tank.
    Guy was running wild out there. As a 6-9 center, he is liking the small-ball era. Still cannot shoot though.

    Bucks are scoring with ease. . . they put more points on the board then it seems like they ought to have. Giannis was neither present nor needed vs CLE.

    Hill and Dellevedova were wearing the wrong unis though!
    Everyone was. Bucks in yellow, Cavs in black, confusing. Cmon, team colors. Black unis should have shipped out with Lebron.
