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.
