Garland (groin) won't play Tuesday against the Bulls, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. Garland continues to deal with a strained left groin, and Tuesday will mark his fifth straight absence. Per Russo, coach J.B. Bickerstaff said at the Cavs' morning shootaround that he expects Garland to play at some point during the team's six-game road trip, so the rookie is apparently still being viewed as day-to-day. With Kevin Porter Jr. (concussion) also out, expect Collin Sexton and Matthew Dellavedova to again see extended minutes for the shorthanded Cavs.
Garland (groin) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Spurs, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. Garland hasn't been able to resume practice since straining his groin a little over a week ago, so his absence for the second half of a back-to-back set comes as little surprise. The rookie will likely need to put in an on-court workout Monday or during morning shootaround the following day to have a shot at playing in the Cavs' next game Tuesday in Chicago. Matthew Dellavedova should pick up elevated minutes for the duration of Garland's absence.
Garland (groin) won't play Saturday against the Nuggets. As expected, Garland needs some more time to recover from his strained left groin. In his absence, Matthew Dellavedova should continue to see significant run.
Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Friday that Garland (groin) isn't expected to play Saturday versus the Nuggets or Sunday against the Spurs, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. The rookie first-round pick didn't practice Friday but was able to go through an individual workout. Garland missed the last two games with the left groin strain and it appears his absence will stretch to at least four contests.
Garland (groin) will not play Wednesday against the Celtics, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. A strained left groin will keep Garland on the shelf for the second straight game. In his absence, Kevin Porter may draw another start at shooting guard, while Matthew Dellavedova could see more run.
