McRae scored 21 points (7-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT) with three rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 33 minutes in Wednesday's 106-94 loss to the Bulls.
Wednesday marked McRae's second career start as he once again filled in for the injured Kyrie Irving, and he managed to make the most of it, scoring a career-high 21 points. It was his second 20-plus point game in his last three contests, and they both happened to be the only two games McRae recorded over 30 minutes of action. Despite his success, the Tennessee product will probably be returning to the bench soon since Irving appears to be on the mend after participating in the Cavs' morning shootaround on Wednesday.
McRae will start Monday against New Orleans, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.
McRae will receive his second straight start due to Kyrie Irving (hamstring) suffering from hamstring tightness. During Saturday's 121-109 win against the Hornets, McRae recorded 20 points, four rebounds, and one assist within 31 minutes of play.
McRae scored 20 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding four rebounds and an assist in 31 minutes during Saturday's 121-109 win over the Hornets.
Getting his first career start with Kyrie Irving (hamstring) sidelined, McRae was surprisingly productive, as he focused on his shooting and let LeBron James handle primary distribution duties. Irving may not miss much time with his injury, but if he remains out Monday against the Pelicans, McRae will be a very interesting source of cap relief in DFS.
McRae will start in place of Kyrie Irving (hamstring) Saturday against the Hornets, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
The Cavs will hold Irving out as a precaution Saturday, so McRae will get the nod at point guard. While LeBron James will serve as the Cavs' primary ball-handler when he's on the court, McRae should nonetheless see a significant jump in minutes. Still, he's unlikely to be much of a fantasy commodity, particularly with James and Kevin Love likely to shoulder the bulk of the offensive burden.
McRae contributed eight points (3-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three rebounds and one steal across 18 minutes in a 113-102 win over the Bucks on Wednesday.
With the Cavaliers playing their first game without J.R. Smith, who is out indefinitely with a broken thumb, coach Tyronn Lue provided a glimpse of what his rotation will look like for the foreseeable future. DeAndre Liggins started at shooting guard in place of Smith and played 26 minutes, with Iman Shumpert (29 minutes) and McRae picking up some of the slack behind him. Unlike Liggins and Shumpert, McRae is an offensive-first player who can get hot from downtown in a hurry, so he could get more run in contests where the Cavs are trailing and in need of three-point production in order to get back in games. That's not a predicament the Eastern Conference-leading squad should find themselves in very often, however, so McRae can probably be safely left on the waiver wire in the bulk of fantasy leagues.
