Sam Dekker Update

Cleveland- Last night Cleveland Cavaliers forward Sam Dekker had to be carried off the floor against the Orlando Magic, after suffering a left ankle sprain. Earlier this afternoon Dekker underwent an MRI, the results confirmed the left ankle sprain. Dekker is now expected to be out 2-4 weeks, as he will undergo treatment, and reevaluation. His status will be updated as he progresses.

Sam Dekker was acquired last off-season in a trade with the LA Clippers. Dekker attended the University of Wisconsin and was a member of their 2015 Final Four team.

This is yet another setback for a team that is already missing Kevin Love and has started the season (1-10.) Dekker had been staring in place of Love the past few weeks, now the Cavs are down two forwards. New Cavaliers head coach Larry Drew will have decisions to make with the starting line-up going forward, it will be interesting to see what he decides.The Cavaliers host the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday night, who will be without their superstar point guard Russell Westbrook who is out with an ankle injury as well.
