Cavaliers' Sasha Pavlovic to miss 2 months with sprained foot

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers guard Sasha Pavlovic could miss up to two months because of a sprained left foot, a blow to the defending Eastern Conference champions, who are playing their best ball this season.

Pavlovic got hurt during the third quarter of Wednesday night's win over Washington. He scored 13 points and had seven assists before going out.

The Cavaliers, who have won four straight games and are 11-2 since Christmas, said an MRI and CT scan revealed the injury to Pavlovic.

Pavlovic, who missed training camp in a contract holdout, is averaging 7.3 points and has made 35 starts this season.

Would this affect the Cavs hot streak? Or can Devin Brown handle the 2 guard spot?

he is shooting 35% from the field, he gets less than 3 boards and 2 assists per game, and he's defense leaves alot to be desired. i think we'll be fine

Good riddance. Sasha needs to take this time to think about just why we resigned him, because it wasn't for him playing like he is now.

And I don't find Mike Brown intelligent to plug Devin Brown into the lineup. I'll bet he starts Gibson and Hughes, and brings Damon Jones off the bench more.

He's just stupid enough to do that.

The correct answer is, start Devin Brown, with heavy doses of Ira Newble off the bench, and possibly throw in Shannon Brown to see what he can do.

I'm sick and tired of Brown not playing these guys and then guys go down with injuries, or contract issues, and the team falls apart.

Like when Andy was holding out. You'd think he'd try putting Dwayne Jones and/or Cedric Simmons into the rotation. Instead he starts playing Z like 37 minutes per game. At his age?

I agree with Mathius. Pavlovic has been a huge disappointment. The strides he made last season..................all gone.

I'm eager to see more of Shannon Brown. I was impressed with the kid in college and think that he has something to offer to this team

Hopefully, Pavlovic comes back a better player from this. This will give him some time to think about things a little bit. I think he let the hype get to his head.

Mathius nailed it. Brown is just gonna throw Gibson in the starting lineup, bring Jones and D. Brown as the first options off the bench, and leave Shannon rotting away his youth on the bench.

FREE SHANNON BROWN already!

Shannon Brown is not the type of player than can replaced Pavlovic because he is pretty undersized to play the SG position, and he is also a big black hole in the Cavaliers defense.

I say never resigned him next season, and we just look at the Free Agent Market to get quality players that are 10 times better than Shannon Brown.
