Tristan Thompson sprained his right ankle in the first half of Saturday’s game against the Nuggets. He stepped on an opponent’s heel and will now “undergo a period of treatment and rehabilitation for the injury. He is expected to miss multiple games and his return to play timing will be established,” the Cavs said in a statement.

Thompson continued to play with the injury in the game but he “experienced significant swelling overnight.” Thompson has already missed 20 games this season because of a calf injury. The 26-year-old is averaging career-lows of 6 points and 6 rebounds per game this season.
