Antawn Jamison (finger) to have surgery

CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers forward Antawn Jamison will likely
miss the remainder of the season with a broken finger that will
require surgery.

Jamison fractured his left little finger during the second half
of Cleveland's 95-91 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday night. The team
said he will have an operation on Tuesday at the Cleveland Clinic
and that he will be sidelined for at least five weeks.

Jamison's loss is yet another blow to the Cavaliers, who have
the league's worst record but have shown some positive signs
recently. The club is 3-3 since ending a record 26-game losing
streak.

The Cavaliers are already without center Anderson Varejao, who
tore a tendon in his ankle.
