CLEVELAND -- Anthony Bennetts rough rookie season hit a new bump. Nick Novak Jersey . The Cavaliers first-year forward will miss at least three weeks with a strained left knee, the latest setback for the No. 1 overall pick who has been a major disappointment for Cleveland. Bennett underwent an MRI on Sunday that showed a strain to his left patellar tendon. He played eight minutes in Saturdays home loss to the New York Knicks. The injury is another obstacle for Bennett, who has shown some improvement lately and signs of developing into a rotational player. "Hes been coming along," Cavs coach Mike Brown said following practice at Cleveland Clinic Courts. "Hes had some pretty good games for us on both ends of the floor. So its tough with the amount of time left in the season, but its part of this." The Cavs expected to endure some growing pains with Bennett, who played just one season at UNLV. The Canadian came into training camp overweight after undergoing surgery on his left shoulder and then it was learned he suffers from asthma, seasonal allergies and sleep apnea. Bennett has appeared lost at times on the floor, and it hasnt helped that hes put added pressure on himself trying to live up to being the top pick. Through it all, Bennett has continued to work hard and there have been flashes of the 6-foot-8, 260-pounders immense talent and potential. The Cavs will likely take a cautious approach with Bennett, and unless they move themselves into playoff position, its possible his season could be over. Bennetts averaging only 4.1 points and 2.9 rebounds in 13 minutes per game. Also, Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving was sick and missed practice Monday. Hes not expected to miss any time and should be able to travel with the team, which begins a crucial three-game road trip on Wednesday in Phoenix. The Cavs are running out of time to get back into the playoff mix. They enter the week tied with the Knicks in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, 3 1-2 games behind Atlanta for the eighth post-season spot. After facing the Suns, the Cavs will visit Golden State and the Los Angeles Clippers. Next week, the Cavs travel to Miami, Oklahoma City and Houston. The good news is that theyre getting healthier. Centre Anderson Varejao returned to the lineup Saturday after missing 12 games with a back issue and his minutes will likely increase over the next few games, Brown said. The Cavs will also have swingman C.J. Miles back in their rotation after he missed nine games with a sprained ankle. Owner Dan Gilbert vowed his team would be back in the playoffs for the first time since 2010, but that pledge wont happen if the Cavs dont start stringing wins together. On their last West Coast trip, they went 3-2 and played with confidence that carried them for several weeks. "We need to play well, obviously with where were sitting," Brown said. "Im looking forward to it and I think the guys are, too. Hopefully well do what were capable of and come back feeling good about ourselves." Casey Hayward Jersey . on the 15-day disabled Monday list because of a strained right hamstring. Kenny Wiggins Jersey .com) - Chris Kreider tallied a goal and an assist as the New York Rangers capped a successful California road trip with a 3-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa -- The Crusaders scored four of their six tries in the last 17 minutes to beat the Cheetahs 52-31 in Super Rugby with a powerful finish on Saturday. Wing Nemani Nadolo collected a hat trick. Trailing by five points after 63 minutes, the Crusaders found late energy to subdue a Cheetahs team in a free-flowing 10-try game at Free State Stadium. Super Rugbys most successful team also made it two wins from two from its tour of South Africa, lifting it within range of the playoff places. The Christchurch-based Crusaders led 26-10 after Nadolo went over for his first in the opening minute of the second half, benefiting from a slick offload out wide from fit-again No. 8 and captain Kieran Read. Cheetahs centre Johann Sadie inspired the home teams brief fight-back, setting up two of three tries for the strugglers in an eight-minute burst from the 50th. But the seven-time champion Crusaders roared home at the end as tries from replacement Tom Taylor, flyhalf Colin Slade and two more from the rampant Nadolo sealed victory in style. Slade scored 25 points. Sadie was the Cheetahs best player, slicing through the miidfield in the 17th to set up the games first five-pointer for wing Cornal Hendricks. Dan Fouts Jersey. All Blacks fullback Israel Dagg replied for the Crusaders in the 28th, straight after a disallowed Cheetahs try, when he raced onto a chip through in the right corner. Nadolo ran in his first straight from the kickoff after a Cheetahs error, and after Read committed two players and flipped a pass away to the big left wing. With Slades conversion, the Crusaders led 26-10. Sadies chip and collect for the Cheetahs set up scrumhalf Sarel Pretorius dash to the corner and replacement loose forward Teboho Mohoje then burst through two tackles and beat Dagg in a race to the line. Sadies slick handling was responsible for Willie le Rouxs try in the 59th and the Cheetahs then led 31-26. They didnt score again. Taylor followed up a surge by flanker Matt Todd to score in the 64th and Slade took a quick tap penalty and surged downfield before finding Nadolo with a long pass for the left wings second four minutes later.
