Cavaliers lose forwards Graham, Powe to injury

CBSSports.com wire reports

CLEVELAND -- The losses and the injuries are mounting for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Forward Joey Graham will miss the next two to three weeks with a partial tear in his right quad, and forward Leon Powe will be out for at least a week with a lacerated finger.

Graham originally injured the quad in training camp, but returned and recently worked his way into the starting lineup. He re-injured the quad against Miami on Wednesday night. Graham, who is averaging 7.1 points in 16 games, is one of Cleveland's best defensive players.

Powe is averaging 4.6 points in 11 games. He caught his right middle finger on the net while trying to dunk during practice Thursday, causing a large gash.

The Cavaliers took a 10-game losing streak into Saturday night's game against New York, and the injuries further shorten coach Byron Scott's bench.
