Cavaliers' Evan Mobley Sidelined with Sprained Ankle

In unfortunate news for the Cleveland Cavaliers, power forward Evan Mobley is set to miss at least one week of action due to a sprained left ankle. Here are the details:

Injury Details:

Evan Mobley, standing at 6-foot-11, sustained the ankle injury during the third quarter of Tuesday’s game against the Boston Celtics. Tests conducted in Cleveland on Wednesday confirmed the sprain, prompting the Cavaliers’ medical staff to expect him sidelined for approximately one week.

Player Stats:

As one of the standout rookies from the 2021 Draft, Mobley has been a key contributor for the Cavaliers this season, averaging 15.6 points and 10.2 rebounds per game. The team will undoubtedly feel his absence.

Coach’s Comments:

Cavaliers head coach J. B. Bickerstaff addressed Mobley’s injury, noting that the young player’s ankle is currently “tender.” Bickerstaff expressed uncertainty about Mobley’s timeline for return, indicating that the team will monitor his progress closely.


In Mobley’s absence, forward Georges Niang stepped up to make his second start of the season in the game against the Atlanta Hawks. The Cavaliers will need to rely on their depth to fill the void left by Mobley’s injury.

Additional Absences:

The Cavaliers faced further challenges with All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell sidelined due to a left knee bone bruise, along with guard Max Strus, who was out with a right knee strain, in their matchup against the Atlanta Hawks.

While injuries are an unfortunate reality in professional sports, the Cavaliers will look to weather this setback and continue their pursuit of success on the court.
