Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Cavaliers forward Sam Dekker will be sidelined for 2-4 weeks with left ankle sprain the team announced Tuesday.

Dekker suffered the injury in the third quarter of Monday night’s 102-100 loss at Orlando.

An MRI Tuesday confirmed the injury.

Dekker is averaging 6.3 points, 1.0 assist and 3.7 rebounds over nine games, five starts this season for the Cavs.

The 1-9 Cavs are already without forward Kevin Love, who is sidelined for at least six weeks after undergoing foot surgery last week.
