In the midst of a 10-game winning streak, the Cleveland Cavaliers have turned their season around. Now 15-7, the Cavs are third in the Eastern Conference and lurk just 3.5 games behind the first-place Boston Celtics. Unfortunately, as things are getting better from a record perspective, the team has just lost another rotation player to injury. Already down Tristan Thompson and Derrick Rose (though many would argue Rose's injury is actually addition by subtraction), the Cavs will now be without guard Iman Shumpert for up to two months. Shumpert underwent surgery on Friday to repair a meniscus tear in his left knee. At times forced into point guard duty because of injuries to Rose and Isaiah Thomas, Shumpert has averaged 4.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in 13 games this season.
