The Cleveland Cavaliers have been doing pretty well lately, securing a few big wins and, yes, a few painful losses too.
They have done this without a few of their players, who have been out due to injury.
Well, their injury list is sadly growing by one more person.
Cavaliers forward Dean Wade is expected to be out 3-to-4 weeks with a left shoulder injury, team says.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that forward Dean Wade is going to miss at least 3 to 4 weeks with a left shoulder injury.
Wade encountered the injury during Friday night’s win over the Orlando Magic.
He didn’t score at all in his 10 minutes before being injured.
While the Cavaliers will be able to get by without Wade, it’s troubling to see yet another injury hit the team.
Wade will be missed.
Wade is currently averaging 6.4 points and 4.1 rebounds in 24.1 minutes per game.
This season, he has started in 9 games because he’s been filling in for other numerous players who have all been bit by the injury bug at one point or another.
Despite that, the team is right now 15-9 and the third team in the East.
The good news is that these injuries are coming early in the season, and the Cavs have been able to keep playing well despite the absences of their guys.
But the bad news is that a troubling trend is growing – again.
The Cavaliers do not want to be losing players all season long, especially as the postseason approaches in a few months.
Cavs fans are hoping that Wade’s injury is the last one for a long time.
