The Cavaliers revealed that Allen is set to undergo a re-evaluation in approximately two weeks, following an MRI conducted at the Cleveland Clinic Sports Health, which confirmed the extent of the injury on Friday.
The injury comes at a crucial time as Cleveland are gearing up for the start of their season, with their opening game scheduled to be an away matchup against Allen’s former team, the Brooklyn Nets, on October 25th, just around 2 1/2 weeks from now.
Jarrett Allen, at the age of 25, delivered solid performances last season, averaging 14.3 points and 9.8 rebounds across 68 games, all of which he started. Additionally, he earned an All-Star nod during the 2021-22 season.
Over the course of his career, spanning 409 games, with 344 of those as a starter, he has contributed an average of 12.0 points and 8.9 rebounds while playing for the Brooklyn Nets from 2017 to 2020 and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
