Cavaliers center Semih Erden suffered a right ankle sprain during last night’s loss against Indiana, falling hard and having to be carried off of the floor by teammates Anderson Varjeao and Antawn Jamison.
X-rays taken at The Q last night were negative and he received an MRI this morning at the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Sports Health, which confirmed the ankle sprain.
Erden will not travel with the team today to Indiana and will be listed as “out” for the Cavaliers game at Indiana on Friday and at Washington on Saturday. He will remain in Cleveland to receive treatment and his status will be updated as appropriate.
The 25-year-old Erden is averaging 3.5 points and 2.6 rebounds in 28 games this season, averaging 11.9 minutes per night.

After you see it for the second game, you don’t really get surprised the third and fourth and fifth game. I know what he is. I know what type of player he is. I know he can put big numbers on the scoreboard given the opportunity. That part of his game I know. The other part is trying to get him to understand (that) on the defensive end he has to get better and I thought tonight...
There’s something about an unsung hero that makes winning extremely satisfying.
Maybe it’s the surprise of it all. Maybe it’s the out-of-the-blue extraordinary performances that are displayed by the unexpected—for a team that’s unexpected.
Allowing these unsung heroes to prove themselves is the only pot that the Cleveland Cavaliers can really pick from these days since...
Since you know who took his talents to South Beach, the Cavaliers have gotten a free pass from the fans and the media in Northeast Ohio. It doesn't seem to matter how much they lose because fans have bought into the rebuilding project that's taken place.They've turned into a D-League team right before our eyes, as they have four players on the roster who have spent time...
I will be doing an interactive Twitter Q+A using questions from #Cavs fans later on tonight with Cavaliers phenom Lester Hudson, so tweet @ me a good question to #AskLester and I will ask him. Try to to make the question something you don't think people will already be asking him, use a little creativity, and if it's a solid question I will ask him and use it in the Q+A that...

While engaging in a play fight with Indiana Pacers forward David West, Moondog suffered an eye injury and had to be sent to the hospital.
Outside of rookie guard Kyrie Irving, the most recognizable member of the Cleveland Cavaliers has to be their mascot, Moondog.Sadly, Moodog hasn't been in action as of late due to an injury suffered while play-fighting with Indiana forward David West:Mascot Moondog was the latest wearing wine and gold to get hurt Thursday night, when the Pacers’ David West accidentally struck...
Whether you believe the Indiana Pacers are for real or not, the fact is right now the Pacers are the 3 seed in the Eastern Conference. With the Cavaliers playing the 2nd night of a back to back, this was sure to be a tough challenge for the young Cavs team.
The Cavaliers came out and showed tremendous fight in this game. For most of the contest, this was a closely contested game...
In extremely important sports news to me, Cleveland.com is reporting that Cavaliers mascot “Moondog” was taken to the hospital after a good natured game of pre-game man-to-dog roughhousing got out of control and nearly cost him an eye. The injury came courtesy of Indiana Pacers forward David West, so of course when I read “Cavs mascot sent to hospital by West” my first...
Everybody knows that the Cleveland Cavaliers are bad, but the scoreboard operator took this notion to a whole new level during last nights contest with the Indiana Pacers.
If you turned on the Cavs-Pacers game early in the first quarter, you would have learned that the struggling Cavaliers where losing 193 to 4 just minutes into the game! Sadly, to many Cavs fans a 189 point deficit...
The Cavaliers made a game of this one- for a half anyway. Dominated in the paint, and cold outside shooting were recipes for a loss in this one.
It’s amazing how quickly things can change in the NBA. A few weeks ago, Jeremy Lin was the talk of the town. Linsanity was in full swing. The kid was getting shoe deals, standing ovations in Madison Square Garden and a slew of racist headlines. Times were good. But now, it’s like no one knows he even exists anymore. Go under the knife for a necessary knee surgery and your celebrity...
Lester Hudsons road to the Cavaliers was hardly paved with gold. Hot coals and bare feet would be more like it.
From about the time he hit college, the odds were against Hudson in the NBA. Or at least, against Hudson having made the impact he has for the Cavs so far.
Hudson is a native of Memphis and began his college career at something called Southwest Tennessee Community College...
Maybe you heard the news about the Cleveland Cavaliers mascot, Moondog, suffering an eye injury last night while horsing around with the Indiana Pacers David West. This was just the kind of news that jostled our brain and reminded us that the team used to have the horniest mascot in the NBA. A quick check today of Moondog’s Flickr page showed us that nothing has changed. The ...
