The Cleveland Cavaliers announced on Monday that first round pick Anthony Bennett will miss the next three weeks with a left patellar tendon strain. Bennett had an MRI on Sunday at the Cleveland Clinic that revealed the strain.
The injury kept Bennett out of one game, and may have been a contributing factor in his limited minutes over the last two weeks.
Jason Lloyd is also reporting that Kyrie Irving missed practice Monday because of an illness.
For the season, Bennett averages 4.1 points per game and 2.9 rebounds. In February, he averaged 7.2 points and 4.8 rebounds.
