Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Will play both halves of back-to-back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cavaliers GM David Griffin said Love has been cleared to play in both halves of the team's back-to-back set Friday against the Hornets and Saturday against the Wizards, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

After making his return from left knee surgery March 16 against the Jazz, Love was held out of the team's subsequent game two days later, as it was the front end of a back-to-back set. Though Love won't have any restrictions as far as participating in games is concerned, the Cavaliers continue to be judicious with his minutes load coming off the injury. Love hasn't seen more than 26 minutes in any of his three appearances, and Griffin hinted that the power forward would remain in that range for both games over the weekend. As a result of the lesser-than-normal workload, Love probably won't make for as appealing of a DFS option over the next two games as he had prior to suffering the injury.

Cavaliers' Larry Sanders: Recalled from D-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders was recalled Thursday from the D-League's Canton Charge, Jason Lloyd of The Athletic reports.

Sanders saw his first action with the Charge on Saturday, posting two points (0-2 FG, 2-4 FT), one rebound and three blocks over 12 minutes. He also picked up five fouls, so it wasn't necessarily the best debut. The Cavaliers continue to try and get Sanders minutes in order to get his conditioning in order after a two-year hiatus from the NBA, so it wouldn't be surprising if he continues to alternate between the two rosters. That said, after being recalled, Sanders should be available off the bench for Friday's game against the Hornets, although his role will likely be very limited.

Cavaliers' Kyle Korver: Plays 19 minutes in return from foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korver (foot) provided nine points (3-9 FG, 3-8 3Pt), one rebound and one assist across 19 minutes in a 126-113 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Korver didn't display his usual accuracy from three-point range in his return from a seven-game absence, but he should have a chance to regain a few more minutes in contests once he becomes further removed from the foot injury. Fortunately for Korver, J.R. Smith (three points on 1-of-7 shooting) was fairly unimpressive in his move to the starting five, so it appears the playing time at shooting guard could still be very much up for grabs.

Cavaliers' LeBron James: Has below-average night in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James posted 18 points (8-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds and five assists over 34 minutes in Wednesday's 126-113 loss to the Nuggets.

James scored well below his 26.2 point season average on Wednesday and had an all-around unimpressive stat line (at least for The King). Kyrie Irving provided the majority of Cleveland's offensive spark in a losing effort, but Wednesday's game further illustrates the need for the Cavs to be humming on all cylinders if they wish to be competitive when playoff time arrives. Despite the loss, James is a must-start every game, but owners should closely monitor Cleveland's game-day updates as they could rest their starters multiple times in the coming weeks.

Cavaliers' Deron Williams: Leads bench with 19 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams posted 19 points (8-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one blocked shot over 20 minutes in Wednesday's 126-113 loss to the Nuggets.

Since joining the Cavaliers on March 1, Williams hasn't had much impact playing behind Kyrie Irving, but tonight marked his highest point total with the team. Williams could have an interesting role with the team in the next few weeks, as Cleveland may opt to rest some starters leading up to the playoffs, and his output tonight could garner some extra minutes in that role. He's also an excellent insurance policy for Irving if you're in a format that begins their playoffs this week or next week.
