The Cleveland Cavaliers celebrated Columbus Day with injuries sustained by three new members of the team. Guard Jarrett Jack has been diagnosed with chondromalacia in his left knee which is inflammation and irritation of cartilage on the underside of the patella. A treatment plan has been established and started that will result in Jack being out for approximately 10 days. Jack has played in at least 79 games in seven of his eight seasons in the NBA. Rookie guard/forward Carrick Felix was evaluated for groin pain today with a related MRI revealing a mild sports hernia. He will undergo treatment and a period of continued evaluation. There is no immediate timetable established for his return to play, but his status will be updated as appropriate and based on the results of his ongoing evaluation. Fellow rookie guard/forward Sergey Karasev was excused from the team following today’s practice in order to travel to obtain his work visa and re-enter the United States. He is expected to return this Thursday prior to the Cavaliers game against the Pistons at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
