  • Markkanen had 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one block in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 110-106 loss to the Grizzlies. Markkanen was one of just a handful of Cavs players to dodge a recent COVID-19 outbreak -- he contracted the virus back in November -- but he hasn't been able to do much with the increased workload. Coming into the night, Markkanen averaged just 11.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists on 38.4 percent shooting (12.9% 3Pt) over his last seven games. While he got back on track, to some degree, Tuesday night, his downturn from beyond the arc is concerning. Over the last eight games, Markkanen is a combined 5-of-36 from deep.

  • Markkanen provided 20 points (9-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 22 minutes during Sunday's 144-99 win over the Raptors. Markkanen was held to single figures in the scoring column in each of his last two appearances, but he was one of three players to score 20-plus points for the Cavaliers in Sunday's blowout win. The 24-year-old has now scored at least 10 points in seven of his 12 appearances since the start of December.

  • Markkanen and the Cavaliers won't play the Hawks on Sunday since the game was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Jarrett Allen and four unnamed Cavaliers players tested positive for the virus Sunday morning, leading to the postponement. Markkanen and the rest of the Cleveland squad are scheduled to play at Boston on Wednesday, pending additional developments.

  • Markkanen closed with 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists over 32 minutes during Monday's 105-94 victory over the Heat. Coming off a season-low three-point performance across 1-of-8 shooting against the Kings on Saturday, the forward bounced backed and recorded double figures for a fourth time over the past five matchups. Since returning from health and safety protocols Nov. 22 against Brooklyn, Markkanen has registered at least 20 points in fourth matchups while tallying double figures in all but three outings.
