Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson is going to miss three to four weeks following the calf injury he suffered in Wednesday night’s loss to Indiana, the team said. The team said imaging done on Thompson’s left calf confirmed the original diagnosis of a strain. Jae Crowder returns to the starting lineup and Channing Frye is going to get a shot in the rotation, coach Tyronn Lue said. It means the Cavs, who have lost four straight and five of six, will play their sixth different starting lineup already this season.
Lue also told reporters that he wanted new players to the team, such as Crowder and Derrick Rose, to be more aggressive. This comes after Lue told reporters he thought some of the Cavs were “intimidated” to play with LeBron James. “I just told Jae Crowder and D Rose and the new guys, just play your game,” Lue said of Cleveland’s newcomers. “Like, be aggressive, be who you are. LeBron and Kevin and those guys are unselfish, so they’re going to be able to adjust to you. We don’t want you to be worrying about if you’re taking too many shots or if you’re being too aggressive, running too many pick and rolls. Just play your game, and if you do it too much we’ll let you know.”
