HoopsHype Leon Powe rumors
Unfortunately for Powe, he's been plagued by significant knee injuries that required major reconstructive surgery at every level as well. He's always bounced back, though, and the 2010-2011 campaign is just another opportunity for him to show off his perseverance. "He's looking pretty good to be honest with you," Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott told HOOPSWORLD. "Leon had a terrible injury and he's working his way back. We had to limit his participation in practice but now he's pretty much at full go. It's just a matter of getting him back in him back in playoff shape and getting back on the floor so he can understand what he's supposed to do. One thing about him is he's a warrior and the ruggedness he plays with can help us." HoopsWorld
While most of the Cavs were running to the point of exhaustion, the team keep a close eye on forward Leon Powe. Now about 18 months off his major knee surgery, Powe is closer to 100 percent, but the team is still being cautious. The hope is that Powe can be a regular contributor this season. "With Leon we have to take it slow," Scott said. "I've told him he has to be honest with him and I left it up to him to let me know how he was feeling. We don't want to push him too far. It is a gradual progression with him to get him going." Cleveland Plain Dealer
