Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters will miss the rest of Cleveland's game against Indiana with a sore left knee. Waiters scored four points in the first quarter, but didn't play in the second. The Cavaliers announced in the third quarter that he would be held out the rest of the game as a precaution and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Waiters, the No. 4 pick in the draft, is Cleveland's second-leading scorer, averaging 14.7 points. Waiters was given the Eastern Conference rookie of the month award for February before the game. The Cavaliers played their fourth straight game without All-Star guard Kyrie Irving, who is expected to miss at least three more weeks with a sprained left shoulder.
