Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) – Cleveland Cavaliers forward Ira Newble is
expected to be sidelined the next four-to-six weeks due to plantar fasciitis
in his right foot.

Newble received high energy shockwave treatment Friday morning in Pittsburgh.
The procedure was performed by Dr. Edward Snell, the physician for the
Pittsburgh Pirates, at the Southwest Ambulatory Surgical Center.

The 30-year-old Newble played in 74 games (69 starts) with the Cavaliers last
season and averaged 5.9 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.8 minutes
per game. He scored in double figures 15 times. He has been on the inactive
list for every game this season.
