It was revealed after the game that Mobley suffered an elbow sprain. It now sounds like the youngster is going to miss multiple weeks.

The Cavs are very banged up, as they’re down several key rotation players. Getting healthy is the top priority for the squad right now.
As for Mobley, he’ll hope to recover from the setback and return to game action as soon as it makes sense to do so. Cleveland will certainly be cautious with Mobley as he deals with the injury, as the 20-year-old is already proving to be one of the league’s most exciting young players.
Over 15 games this season, Mobley is averaging 14.6 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per contest. He had a rough showing against Boston, which has been a rare sight this season.
The Cavs still have a solid record with 15 games in the books. They’re 9-6 so far.
