Bennett Cleared For Basketball Activities
Cleveland Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett, the No. 1 pick in June’s NBA draft, resumed playing five-on-five basketball this week, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Bennett had surgery May 8 to repair a torn left rotator cuff that was expected to keep him out for fourth months. The former UNLV star was not able to play for the Cavaliers’ summer league team in Las Vegas because of the injury. Bennett, however, began playing five-on-five without any restrictions this week for the first time since the surgery. He has played well, but needs to get in much better shape as the start of training camp nears.
