The Cleveland Cavaliers will be without rookie guard Carrick Felix for the next six to eight weeks.
The Cavaliers officially announced the news Tuesday.
Cavaliers guard/forward Carrick Felix left the Canton Charge game on Saturday in Delaware against the 87ers with a left knee injury in the fourth quarter. An MRI has revealed a Left Patellar Stress Fracture. He is OUT from all basketball activity and the timetable for his return is approximately six to eight weeks.
The Cavaliers selected Felix out of Arizona State with the 33rd overall pick in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft. The Cavaliers had hopes that Felix could provide depth behind guards Dion Waiters and C.J. Miles. That, however, hasn’t worked out. Felix has played in just six games for the Cavaliers this season and has spent most of the year going up and down between the Cavaliers and the team’s NBA Developmental League affiliate, the Canton Charge.
Felix is averaging 1.5 points, 0.7 rebounds and 0.2 assists in 4.3 minutes per game.
