Cavaliers' Mamadi Diakite: Out of starting lineup
Diakite will come off the bench Tuesday against the Lakers, Evan Dammarell of FearTheSword.com reports.
With Jarrett Allen (back) returning, Diakite will resume a reserve role. However, he barely played when Allen was healthy, and given that he's on a two-way deal, Diakite may get sent back to the G League sooner than later.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Jarrett Allen: Returning Tuesday
Allen (back) is making his return Tuesday against the Lakers, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Following a five-game absence, Allen will return Tuesday. His presence will presumably push Mamadi Diakite to the bench, and fewer minutes may also be available for Lamar Stevens, Kevin Love and Robin Lopez. In his 16 appearances prior to his injury, Allen averaged 14.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in 33.4 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Isaiah Mobley: Records double-double
Mobley notched 24 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and a steal across 40 minutes in Monday's win over Windy City.
The former Southern California standout keeps showing he might be ready to play in the NBA sooner than later, and he has looked dominant on both ends when playing for the Charge. Across eight games in the G League, Mobley is averaging 21.5 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.4 blocks per contest.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Jarrett Allen: Takes part in shootaround
Allen (back), who is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Lakers, took part in the Cavaliers' morning shootaround, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Allen has missed the Cavaliers' last five games, but his involvement in shootaround is a promising sign for his chances of ending his streak of absences Tuesday. The Cavaliers will likely provide more clarity on Allen's status in the hours leading up to the 7:30 p.m. ET opening tip. If Allen returns, the Cavaliers would have fewer minutes available for the likes of Mamadi Diakite, Robin Lopez and Cedi Osman.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Jarrett Allen: Questionable Tuesday
Allen (back) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Lakers.
Allen has missed the last five games due to a low back contusion, but he'll be in the mix to return to the court Tuesday. Dean Wade (shoulder) has been ruled out for several weeks, so Allen's return would provide a significant boost to Cleveland's frontcourt.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Minimal production Sunday
Love finished Sunday's 92-81 loss to the Knicks with eight points (3-9 FG, 2-7 3Pt) and seven rebounds over 22 minutes.
Love did little over the first three quarters of the game, scoring only three points in 11 minutes of playing time. He came alive in the fourth and scored five points while grabbing seven rebounds, but Cleveland was unable to mount a comeback in New York. The veteran has scored more than 10 points just twice in his last eight games and is averaging just 7.8 points while making 35.3 percent of his shot attempts in that span.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Cedi Osman: Scores 10 points Sunday
Osman recorded 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists and three steals in 30 minutes during Sunday's 92-81 loss to the Knicks.
Osman scored in double figures for just the second time in his last seven games Sunday. Seven of his 10 points came in the second quarter as he went 3-for-5 from the field and played nine minutes. He's averaging just 9.0 points per game through 24 games -- his first time averaging less than 10.0 points per contest since 2017-18.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Woeful shooting Sunday
Garland logged 17 points (5-19 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one steal across 39 minutes during Sunday's 92-81 loss to New York.
Garland missed eight of his last nine shot attempts as Cleveland was unable to pull out a win over the Knicks. He's been inconsistent shooting of late and has made just 38.8 percent of his shots while averaging 18.8 points per game in his last six contests. Even with the recent struggles, he's still averaging 22.2 points and making 40.8 percent of his three-pointers through 18 games this year.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Donovan Mitchell: Rough first half in loss
Mitchell supplied 23 points (8-22 FG, 2-11 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds, five assists and one block in 40 minutes during Sunday's 92-81 loss to the Knicks.
Mitchell missed seven of his nine shot attempts in the first half before finding his stroke in the third quarter. The nine missed three-pointers were his most of the season. The 26-year-old is having the best shooting season of his career -- making 48.8 percent of his shots and 42.1 percent of his threes -- and Sunday's troubles should not be cause for concern....

Cavaliers' Mamadi Diakite: Draws another spot start
Diakite will start Sunday's matchup against the Knicks, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
With Jarrett Allen (back) and Dean Wade (shoulder) both out, Diakite will get another shot in the starting lineup. In his only other start this season (Nov. 30 against Philadelphia), the third-year big man posted six points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 23 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Out 3-to-4 weeks
Wade was diagnosed Sunday with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder and is expected to miss 3-to-4 weeks.
Wade left Friday's win over the Magic due to the injury and is now set for an extended absence. With Wade out of the picture, Lamar Stevens should have a clear path to the starting gig at small forward, assuming the Cavaliers decide to keep Caris LeVert in his sixth-man role. Stevens, Cedi Osman and Isaac Okoro should be among the beneficiaries for added minutes in Wade's absence, though none of the three are safe bets to attain fantasy relevance in most 12-team leagues....

Cavaliers' Jarrett Allen: Remains out Sunday
Allen (back) will sit out Sunday's matchup against the Knicks, Evan Dammarell of FearTheSword.com reports.
Allen will miss a fifth straight contest due to a bruised lower back. Dean Wade (shoulder) will also be absent, meaning Kevin Love, Evan Mobley and Cedi Osman will be relied upon heavily in the frontcourt. Allen's next chance to play will come Tuesday against the Lakers.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Dean Wade: May be out multiple weeks
Wade (shoulder) could be out multiple weeks, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Wade exited Friday's game against the Magic due to a left shoulder injury. Wade has been an essential part of Cleveland's rotation this season, starting nine of his 17 appearances and averaging 6.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 24.1 minutes. In his extended absence, more minutes should be available for Lamar Stevens, Cedi Osman, Isaac Okoro and Caris LeVert.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Lamar Stevens: Makes return from illness
Stevens (illness) played 15 minutes and logged eight points (3-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in Friday's 107-96 win over the Magic.
Stevens reclaimed his spot in the starting five Friday after missing the previous four games while battling an illness. Though he received a light minutes count in his return, Stevens could be in store for more playing time if the shoulder injury that resulted in Dean Wade's early exit Friday causes him to miss the Cavaliers' next game Sunday against the Knicks....
