Isaiah Taylor suffered a setback in his quest for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ final roster spot and could miss a month after a CT scan revealed a stress fracture in his left leg. Taylor said the injury likely occurred at some point during summer workouts and he played at “probably 50 or 60 percent” during training camp. Because of the pain in his lower leg, Taylor received X-rays and multiple MRIs, which didn’t show anything significant. Finally, the CT scan conducted on Thursday revealed the bad news.

There is no timetable for his return, but Taylor told cleveland.com on Friday morning that a month is most likely. “He’s played so well, competed every single day even though he has felt this for a while,” head coach Tyronn Lue said. “To play the way he has played in feeling that is kind of crazy, unbelievable. Just feel sorry for the kid and the work he’s put in. Hopefully he can get through this and get healthy.”
