Thumb surgery.  I don't see a lot of veteran depth behind him at the SG.  Could be an opportunity for Toronto and Boston to close the gap a bit.  At worst, maybe it will force Tyronn Lue to play 31 year old (he'll be 32 on 12/30) LeBron James heavier minutes, which will pay dividends later in the season.  We're not even at the halfway mark.  As it is, he is playing 37.2mpg, the most since 2013-2014 when he played 37.7mpg.

Just goes to show that an injury to any player can happen at any time.

4-6 weeks is a long time without a starter for just about any team. Hope we do not have this problem at any time.

Now 12-14 weeks instead of 4-6 weeks.  Puts his return at the very end of the regular season:

Nyets now tied with Philly at 7-21 for the worst record in the league.
