CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - It was a painful Monday night in more ways than one for the Cavaliers, who lost big to the Milwaukee Bucks, 108-98, and also lost their leader, Tristan Thompson, along the way.

Thompson, who’s been averaging a double-double this season (12 points, 12 rebounds per game), left the game with 7:47 remaining in the third quarter after rolling his left foot while going for a rebound. The Cavs trailed by double-digits at the time, and would never recover.

Thompson said after the game that x-rays were negative. He’s calling it a sprain.

Larry Nance, Jr. led the Cavaliers with 16 points off the bench, while Collin Sexton added 15.

Eric Bledsoe led the Bucks with 16 points.
