Cleveland adds forward Anthony Bennett, No. 1 pick in draft, to long injury list

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — Cleveland forward Anthony Bennett missed the Cavaliers’ game against Utah on Friday night because of a sore right knee, adding to the team’s long list of injuries.

Center Anderson Varejao (sore back) and guards Dion Waiters (hyperextended left knee) and C.J. Miles (sprained left ankle) also are sidelined.

Bennett, the top pick in the draft last year, is averaging 4.0 points and 3.1 rebounds in 12.9 minutes a game. The team said Bennett will be a game-time decision Saturday night at Memphis.

Varejao missed his ninth straight game, Waiters was out for the sixth contest in a row and Miles was unavailable for the fifth consecutive game. Coach Mike Brown said all three took part in portions of Friday morning’s shootaround but there is no timetable for their return.

The Cavaliers had 10 available players for the game against Utah.
