INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - Cavaliers forward Lorenzen Wright will undergo surgery after breaking his thumb in Cleveland's regular-season finale.
Wright, who was not expected to play during the postseason, got
hurt in the second half of Wednesday night's loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. The team said the 12-year veteran will have an
operation on Friday at the Cleveland Clinic and his recovery will
take six weeks.
The 6-foot-11 Wright scored four points in what may have been
his final NBA game against the Sixers. He's a free agent after this season and unlikely to be re-signed by the Cavs.
Wright has also played for the Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta,
Memphis and Sacramento.
