Already missing an All-Star and their best big man, the Cleveland Cavaliers have lost another key player to injury.
Rookie guard Dion Waiters will miss at least one week with a sore left knee and may need surgery, another blow to the young Cavs who are already without Kyrie Irving and Anderson Varejao and will have to face the history-chasing Miami Heat on Wednesday night. The Heat have won 23 straight games, the second-longest streak in NBA history.
Waiters, who has been slowed by the knee for several games, left Monday's game against Indiana in the first half and did not return. He underwent an MRI on Tuesday which revealed loose cartilage in his left knee. The Cavs said Waiters will rest and have treatment over the next week, and it's possible the No. 4 overall pick in last year's draft may need an arthroscopic procedure.
It's another setback to the banged-up Cavs, who may not have Irving back this season. He recently sprained his left shoulder and will be out another two week...
