CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Cleveland Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson is out for at least a month.
Thompson experienced a left calf strain during last night’s 124-107 loss against the Indiana Pacers.
Double-T left the game in the second quarter and did not come back.
An MRI at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health Thursday confirmed the strain.
