Holland (shoulder) is expected to suit up and play in Friday's game against the Hawks, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports. Holland has been out since Dec. 15 with a left shoulder subluxation, but appears to be back to full strength after logging 37 minutes for the G League's Canton Charge on Monday. The Cavaliers shipped out six players at the trade deadline and all of the four players obtained in corresponding moves likely won't be ready to play just yet. That should leave some playing time to fill off the bench, which is where Holland should come in. Look for Holland to get a handful of minutes, though it won't be enough to warrant any sort of usage in fantasy leagues or DFS contests.
Holland suffered a left shoulder subluxation in Wednesday's G-League game and is out 4-to-6 weeks. Holland has spent most of his rookie season in the G-League with the Canton Charge, but he has appeared in three games with the Cavaliers this season. He's expected to remain with the Charge while he rehabs the shoulder injury.
Holland's contract with the Cavaliers is two-way, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports. Due to the nature of two-way contracts, Holland will spend the majority of the season with the Cavaliers' G-League affiliate, the Canton Charge. He may spend up to 45 days at the NBA level, however. He played 37 games with the Charge last year, posting 22.9 points, 4.7 boards, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals across 38.8 minutes per contest.
Holland will sign a contract with the Cavaliers, international writer David Pick reports. Holland reportedly had multiple high level offers in Europe, but will instead head to training camp with Cleveland in hopes of making the team's regular-season roster. The fact that the Cavaliers already have 15 guaranteed contracts doesn't bode well for Holland's chances and even if he does make the team, he'll be nothing more than a deep reserve. That said, it could be in the form of a two-way contract, which would allow Holland to spend up to 45 days with the Cavaliers, while playing in the G-League the rest of the time. Holland was very impressive in 37 G-League games last season with the Charge, averaging 22.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals across 38.8 minutes.
Holland signed a contract Monday with Beijing Dongfang of the Chinese National Basketball League, Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.com reports. The 29-year-old Holland spent the entire season with the D-League's Canton Charge after being cut by their parent club, the Cavaliers, out of training camp in the fall. After averaging 22.5 points and 4.6 rebounds per game for the Charge, Holland will get his chance to showcase his skills abroad with the hopes of eventually showing back up on the NBA radar.
