HoopsHype Leon Powe rumors


January 24, 2011 Updates

“I was just starting to get into playing some consistent minutes,” Powe recalled. “I drove and I took somebody from Toronto off the dribble and got fouled. But when I came down, his knee hit my knee in an awkward position. I think my knee shifted a little bit and messed up something inside of it, some cartilage on the meniscus a little bit. I’ve got to sit out for four to six weeks, so I’m doing rehab for that. It’s never fun, but I know how to do it.” CSNNE.com

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

The Cavs signed him hoping he could help in the playoffs last season but knew he wouldn't be able to really help until this season. Powe is working out and hoping to be in better condition when the season starts. Cleveland Plain Dealer
