The Cleveland Cavaliers do need him in the post and his absence under the rim will surely be notable. The former 27th overall pick (2015) has played extremely well for the Cavs since joining the team before the trade deadline. Kevin Love leads in rebounds with 9.4.

Right after scoring 12 points with seven rebounds against the Denver Nuggets. the Cavs have announced that Tristan Thompson will miss multiple games. And now, they are set to be without Tristan Thompson following an ankle injury.

Further evaluation at Cleveland Clinic Courts confirmed a right ankle sprain and Thompson will now undergo a period of treatment and rehabilitation for the injury. He continued to play even after the sprain but has now suffered a swelling overnight.

Study could help diabetics receive tailored treatment
People with type 1 diabetes have these antibodies-and therefore can not make insulin on their own-while people with type 2 do not. Type 1 is an autoimmune condition where the body mistakenly attacks the pancreas , stopping it from producing insulin.

The Cavs say Thompson's timetable for return will be established in relation to his daily recovery progress. In 42 games (21 starts), the 26-year-old is averaging 6.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 21.4 minutes - all career lows. If he needs to provide 60-plus points of offense every game when factoring points and assists, then the Cavaliers have to make sure it accounts for less than 50 percent of their offense because it seems like they need at least 120 points to win.

The Detroit Pistons (29-34) have lost five of their last six games including a 105-96 defeat to the Miamih Heat.

The Cavs' first game without Thompson will be March 5 with the Detroit Pistons in Quicken Loans Arena. It's going to be an uphill battle. The Cavaliers aren't the most reliable home team in terms of betting trends, but the home team has covered in eight of the last nine meetings while the Pistons have been awful on the road no matter who they play.
