Cavs News: Tristan Thompson Could Return Friday vs. Miami Heat

1 Min Read

Cleveland Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson practiced with the team on Thursday for the first time since he suffered a sprained foot earlier this month.

The Cavs play the Miami Heat tonight, and it is possible that Thompson returns to action today.

Thompson’s injury occurred in the third quarter of a Cavs game against the Milwaukee Bucks, and he was expected to miss two to four weeks as a result.

The Cavs desperately need Thompson’s scoring and rebounding abilities as fellow teammates Ante Zizic, Rodney Hood, and David Nwaba are out with a sore knee, Achilles soreness, and an ankle injury, respectively.
