On Friday, the Cavs announced that veteran point guard Rajon Rondo will miss approximately two weeks after suffering a sprained big toe on his right foot during the fourth quarter of Cleveland's 106-103 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Thursday. An MRI on Friday confirmed Rondo's injury, which will force him to undergo a period of treatment and rehabilitation.

The announcement of Rondo's injury comes just one day after the Cavs revealed that shooting guard Caris LeVert will miss one-to-two weeks with a sprained right foot. Cleveland's All-Star point guard, Darius Garland, also missed Thursday's loss to the Pistons and is expected to miss Saturday's matchup against the Washington Wizards with a back injury that he's been dealing with for the past month.

Appearing on "The Ken Carman Show" on 92.3 The Fan on Friday, Cavs general manager Mike Gansey revealed that Garland's injury is a bone bruise.

"Unfortunately, with this stretch run, we don't have time," Gansey said of Garland. "But hopefully, we can kind of keep our head above water these next couple of games and see if he can get back. He's our All-Star point guard. We have the big three seven-footers in the back and all of that's great, but Darius makes that engine go. He's an All-Star for a reason. He gets those guys involved and he's our connector, our leader, our playmaker and we dearly miss him, that's for sure."

At 35-24, Cleveland currently lays claim to the fifth-best record in the Eastern Conference.
