CLEVELAND -- The struggling Cavaliers have recalled forward Kevin Jones.

Jones has been playing for the Cavs' D-League affiliate in Canton. In five games with the Charge, the former West Virginia star averaged 23.6 points and 12.6 rebounds. The 6-foot-8 Jones was one of the final players cut by the Cavs at the end of training camp.

Cleveland has struggled without star point guard Kyrie Irving, their leading scorer, who is out with a broken left index finger and expected to miss two more weeks. On Monday night, the Cavs were also missing rookie guard Dion Waiters in an 89-79 loss to Detroit. Waiters has a sprained ankle. He and Irving combine to average 38 points.

The Cavs, who are just 4-14, host Chicago on Wednesday.
