    Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov: Plays 13 minutes in Game 2 blowout win

    Mozgov played 13 minutes and put up zero points (0-1 FG) and one rebound in Wednesday's 123-98 Game 2 win over the Hawks. Coach Tyronn Lue has jettisoned Mozgov from the rotation during the postseason, as the Cavaliers have embraced smaller lineups with more spacing and three-point shooters. Those skills aren't really a part of Mozgov's repertoire, so don't expect to see much of him outside of blowout games in the vein of Wednesday's game.

    Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov: Posts double-double in loss

    Mozgov posted a 14-point, 12-rebound double-double in Wednesday's loss to the Pistons. With a number of regulars sitting out the regular season finale, Mozgov was able to see a season-high 37 minutes, finishing 7-of-12 from the field and adding three assists and two blocks. The big man's role in the postseason is somewhat undefined, and it could vary rather drastically on a game-to-game or series-to-series basis. Coach Tyronn Lue announced earlier in the week that Cleveland will go forth with Tristan Thompson as its starting center.

    Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov: Posts three blocks in 22 minutes Tuesday

    Mozgov managed four points (2-4 FG), four rebounds, three blocks, and one assist in 22 minutes during the Cavaliers' 109-80 win versus the Bucks on Tuesday. Mozgov hadn't seen more than 17 minutes in any of the last four games. Though Mozgov is a starter, Tristan Thompson typically spends most of the night at center. Thompson saw only 18 minutes, but Tuesday's bout with the Bucks was a blowout, and Mozgov is only a modest contributor who makes a minimal impact in fantasy.

    Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov: Starting Monday

    Mozgov will return to the starting five Monday against the Nuggets, Jason Kosmicki of the Nuggets' official site reports. Mozgov was sent to the bench Saturday versus the Heat, but with a traditional center on the side Monday in Nikola Jokic, the Russian will join his brethren at opening tip. In 38 starts this season, Mozgov has averaged 6.7 points (on 56 percent shooting), 4.3 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks in 23 minutes.

    Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov: Moves to bench for Wednesday's game

    Mozgov will come off the bench in Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, Chris Hayes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Mozgov's latest stint in the starting lineup lasted only two games, but coach Tyronn Lue has moved Mozgov and Thompson fairly liberally between the first and second unit since taking over as bench boss. The two players will likely be utilized depending on the matchup on a given night, but regardless of how he's deployed, Mozgov almost always sees less minutes than Thompson.

    Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov: Will start Sunday

    Mozgov will return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Clippers, Cleveland play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod reports. The Cavaliers do not seem to have a permanent center for their starting lineup between Mozgov and Tristan Thompson, as they have rotated a little bit based on matchups recently. Mozgov will draw the start Sunday, but the situation should be monitored going forward. Expect him to still take on his typical workload regardless of starting or not.

    Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov: Available off the bench Thursday

    Mozgov (illness) will be active and available to play off the bench for Thursday's game against the Lakers, Joe Gabriele of Cavs.com reports. Mozgov missed Wednesday's game against the Kings because of an illness, but after another 24 hours to recover, he'll return to the lineup Thursday. Even with Kevin Love (knee) sidelined, Mozgov is expected to come off the bench, with Channing Frye and Tristan Thompson starting at power forward and center respectively. As long as he's not feeling any ill effects, Mozgov could be relied upon for increased minutes with Love out of the game.

    Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov: Misses shootaround with illness

    Mozgov missed shootaround due to illness and is considered questionable to play Wednesday night against the Kings, Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Mozgov's status will likely come down to a game-time decision, but if he's held out expect Tristan Thompson to pick up a few extra minutes. Despite returning to the starting lineup last Monday, Mozgov has reached the 20-minute plateau only once in the last four games, rendering him an ineffective fantasy commodity on most nights.
