After Undergoing Surgery, Antawn Jamison Likely Done for the Season

Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Antawn Jamison has undergone surgery to repair a broken finger. The surgery will require 5-7 weeks of healing, likely ending Jamison's 2010-11 season.

The Breakdown
Jamison should be dropped in seasonal leagues since the best case scenario is that he returns for the final few games of the season. With Cleveland hopelessly out of contention, it's highly unlikely Jamison plays again this year.

Fantasy owners will want to carefully monitor who soaks up Jamison's playing time. Samardo Samuels seems like the most likely candidate to move into the starting line up, though Semih Erden, Luke Harangody, and Ryan Hollins will also by vying for minutes. Whoever ends up benefiting from Jamison's injury could be a really nice pick up in deep leagues for the stretch run.
