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.
