We somehow missed this news while in Arizona, but former Cal star Leon Powe had surgery last Friday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee and is expected to miss about six weeks.
For Powe, who had only played in 14 games this season for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the silver lining is that he was no part of Tuesday night’s embarrassing 112-57 loss to the L.A. Lakers.
We wish Powe a speedy recovery . . . and a new team as soon as possible.
