Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Anthony Bennett will miss at least 3 weeks with a strained left knee, according to the Associated Press' Tom Withers.

Bennett saw limited action in the Cavs game on Saturday in the team's 107-97 home loss against the Knicks and had an MRI to confirm the diagnosis on Sunday.

Bennett has disappointed in his first season after being selected No. 1 overall by Cleveland in the 2013 NBA Draft, averaging 4.1 points and 2.9 rebounds-per-game. He failed to post a double-digit point total in a game until his 33rd game of the season.

MAHONEY: Despite long odds, Josh Smith dreams of teaming up with old friend Rajon Rondo The Cavaliers plan to proceed with caution regarding the knee, according to Withers, and it is possible that Bennett may not play in another game this season.
