  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Pops for 20 in Friday's loss

    Garland chipped in 20 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 38 minutes during Friday's 104-97 loss to the 76ers.

    With Donovan Mitchell (illness) unavailable for a second straight game, Garland stepped up by producing at least 20 points for the second time in the last four contests and falling just short of his second double-double of the season. The fifth-year guard has scored in double digits in eight straight games as he tries to get back into a rhythm following his six-week absence due to a broken jaw, averaging 15.0 points, 7.4 assists, 1.8 threes, 1.6 boards and 1.0 steals over that stretch.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Posts season assist high Thursday

    Garland notched 18 points (6-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 10 assists, two rebounds and two steals over 37 minutes in Thursday's 116-109 loss to Orlando.

    Garland handed out a game-best assist total while connecting on a team-high trio of threes and finishing as one of three Cavaliers with 18 points in a well-balanced offensive showcase. Garland reached double figures in assists for the first time this season, setting a new season-high mark while posting his first double-double of the year. He has handed out seven or more dimes in 14 games this season, including in five straight contests.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Minute restriction lifted

    Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Wednesday that Garland (jaw) is no longer on a minute restriction, Evan Dammarell of reports.

    Following a month-and-a-half absence due to a fractured jaw, Garland was eased back into the rotation over Cleveland's final nine games before the All-Star break. He averaged 12.7 points and 6.0 assists in 27.0 minutes per game during that stretch. In the prior two seasons, Garland averaged over 35.0 minutes per game, so fantasy managers can expect that type of playing time during the stretch run.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Will play Wednesday

    Garland (illness) will play Wednesday against the Bulls, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Garland will shake off a questionable tag and suit up despite being a late addition to the injury report with an illness. Given he's under the weather, Garland may be limited versus Indiana, so daily fantasy players should proceed with caution. After a slow start following a lengthy injury absence, Garland submitted 21 points and nine assists in 31 minutes during a two-point loss to Philadelphia on Monday. Those were his best marks in those categories since December.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Questionable for Wednesday

    Garland is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls due to illness.

    Garland is a late addition to the injury report, which is never a good sign. This is tough luck for the guard, as he was just starting to find his rhythm with 21 points and nine assists against the 76ers on Monday. If he's unable to play, the Cavaliers could turn to Caris LeVert and Craig Porter.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Beginning to emerge

    Garland compiled 21 points (9-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt), nine assists and one steal across 31 minutes during Monday's 123-121 loss to the 76ers.

    Garland posted his first game with 20-plus points across eight appearances since returning from a broken jaw. He entered Monday's contest limping to 25.0 percent shooting from beyond the arc on 4.0 threes per game over that span, so perhaps his performance will snap his funk from deep.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Quiet in 28 minutes

    Garland provided 11 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and five assists across 28 minutes during Monday's 136-110 win over the Kings.

    The good news for Garland's fantasy managers is that this was his largest workload since Dec. 14, but the bad news is that his production hasn't been ideal. Since returning to the lineup on Jan. 31, Garland holds averages of 10.8 points, 4.8 assists, 1.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.3 three-pointers over his last four games.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Cleared for action

    Garland (knee) will play Monday versus Sacramento.

    Garland was dealing with left knee soreness, but he will suit up for his fourth consecutive contest. He has averaged 10.7 points and 4.7 assists on 48.2 percent shooting in three games since returning from a broken jaw.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Questionable with knee soreness

    Garland is questionable for Monday's game against the Kings with left knee soreness.

    Garland is dealing with a new injury, but the Cavaliers are seemingly viewing him as day-to-day. Since his return from a fractured jaw last Wednesday, Garland's minutes have been limited to between 20 and 24 minutes over his three appearances. Given that he's now tending to a knee issue, Garland's playing time will most likely be capped to some extent Monday, if he's able to play.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Still on minutes restriction

    Garland will be limited to 20-to-24 minutes Saturday at San Antonio, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    After seeing 20 minutes in his first game back from a lengthy absence, Garland's workload jumped to 24 minutes Wednesday. However, he'll remain in the 20-to-24 minute range against the Spurs.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Scores 19 points in return

    Garland (jaw) closed with 19 points (7-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three assists and two steals in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 128-121 win over the Pistons.

    After missing the past six weeks with a fractured jaw, Garland made his return to action Wednesday but was under a restriction following a 19-game absence. Though a lower-than-usual assist count and a lack of rebounds resulted in a rather underwhelming line for Garland, he at least provided efficient scoring during his time on the court. Garland sat out the final 7:30 of the win after reaching his minute restriction, but he's expected to be available Thursday in Memphis for the second leg of the back-to-back set, per Evan Dammarell of However, Garland is likely to face a minute restriction once again Thursday.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Starting Wednesday

    Garland (jaw) will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Garland is back after spending 19 games on the sidelines, and his return to the first unit will result in Isaac Okoro heading back to the bench. Head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that Garland will be limited to 20-24 minutes Wednesday night, so he's not the best target in daily fantasy leagues. However, he's safe to activate in all season-long formats.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Present at shootaround

    Garland (jaw), who is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, was present for the Cavaliers' morning shootaround, Evan Dammarell of reports.

    Garland recently said he planned to return to action Wednesday against Detroit, so his presence at shootaround in a starter's practice jersey wasn't surprising. He's missed the last 19 games due to his jaw injury and wasn't able to do strenuous physical activity before it fully healed, so he'll likely face a minutes restriction if he's officially cleared to suit up.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Aiming for return Wednesday

    Garland (jaw) plans to return Wednesday against the Pistons, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. He's officially listed as questionable.

    Garland hasn't played since Dec. 14 and missed a 19th straight game Monday versus the Clippers, but coach J.B. Bickerstaff said prior to the contest that the point guard was "extremely close" to suiting up again. He wasn't able to do anything physically strenuous before his jaw fully healed, so it's safe to presume Garland will have his minutes monitored closely if he's cleared to play Wednesday. Evan Mobley (knee) made his return from a 22-game absence Monday, so the Cavaliers are nearing full strength with the Feb. 8 trade deadline looming.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Will remain out Monday

    Garland (jaw) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Clippers.

    Garland will miss a 19th straight game. He was cleared for basketball activities in mid-January, but he needed extra time to regain his conditioning, as he wasn't allowed to do anything physically strenuous after breaking his jaw. Garland's next chance to suit up will come Wednesday versus the Pistons, but he can be considered doubtful for that contest, barring a return to practice over the next couple of days.
