CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett is expected to miss at least three weeks with a strained left knee.
The No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft, Bennett underwent an MRI on Sunday that showed an injury to his left patellar tendon. Bennett played eight minutes in Saturday's home loss to the New York Knicks.
The Cavs will likely take a cautious approach with Bennett, and it's possible he could be done for the year.
His injury is the latest setback in what has been a disappointing first season for Bennett, averaging only 4.1 points and 2.9 rebounds in 13 minutes per game.
Also, Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving was sick and missed practice Monday.
Running out of time to make the playoffs, the Cavs open a three-game road trip on Wednesday in Phoenix.
