Cleveland Loses Leon Powe to Knee Injury


By Mary Schmitt Boyer, The Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Cavaliers injury list continues to grow.

Leon Powe, the backup center/forward, had surgery on his right knee today to repair a meniscus tear.

Powe had played in Wednesday's game against Toronto, but was on the injury list Thursday with a bruised knee. He underwent an MRI Friday, which revealed the tear.

The Cavs release said is expected to be out approximately six weeks.

The Cavs are already without Daniel Gibson (ankle) on this trip and Joey Graham (quad) is still on the injured list and Anderson Varejao is out indefinitely with an ankle injury. Anthony Parker (back) is questionable for tonight's game at Golden State.

Hi Leon,

I'm a Celtics fan with fond memories of your time here in Boston. It's a damn shame you haven't been able to play more due to all the injuries. I just wanted to wish you all the best and tell you that plenty of Celtics fans still remember you fondly. Anyway, rip it up in Memphis (they're fun to watch, I hope they put you to work) and take care of yourself.
