  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Retreats to bench

    Wade won't start Monday's game against the Clippers, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Wade started 26 of his last 27 appearances, including 22 straight, but he'll return to a bench role Monday in favor of Evan Mobley, who's cleared to make his first appearance since Dec. 26. Mobley will be limited to around 20-to-24 minutes, so Wade should still see some minutes off the bench, though his fantasy value takes a hit.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Scores nine in win

    Wade chipped in nine points (3-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five rebounds and one block over 21 minutes during Friday's 112-100 win over the Bucks.

    While Wade was held below 10 points for the 11th time over his last 13 appearances, he made the most of his limited shot volume during Friday's win. He's also had modest success on the boards recently, hauling in at least five rebounds in four of his last six outings.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Comes close to double-double

    Wade racked up 12 points (4-10 FG, 4-10 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists and three steals over 26 minutes during Monday's 109-91 victory over the Bulls.

    Wade did all of his damage exclusively from beyond the arc, but he also made his presence felt in other areas thanks to his three assists and three steals -- tying season-high marks in both categories. Wade has started in each of the Cavaliers' last 17 games, but that has not been enough to make him a reliable fantasy asset outside of very deep formats. He's only averaging 6.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Nears double-double Thursday

    Wade posted 20 points (7-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt), nine rebounds and two blocks across 26 minutes during Thursday's 123-104 loss to the Pelicans.

    Wade scored in double figures for the third time in his last four appearances with a season-high 20 points Thursday, and he came within one rebound of his first double-double of the season. He's served as a starter in his last eight appearances, averaging 9.8 points and 5.4 rebounds in 23.8 minutes per game during that span.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Comes to life in win

    Wade ended with 16 points (5-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 22 minutes during Saturday's 127-119 win over the Hawks.

    Wade fired away confidently in a spot-up role for Cleveland, and this level of production was the vision of what Wade could provide as a rotational jumbo-shooting wing when Cleveland extended him in the 2022 offseason. Saturday marked his first double-digit scoring game across 19 appearances, but he's likely due for a 20-25-minute nightly role moving forward.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Plays well in start

    Wade notched nine points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and three steals in 29 minutes during Monday's 104-94 loss to Orlando.

    Evan Mobley (knee) missed his second straight game for the Cavaliers, so Wade stepped into the starting lineup again and held his own as he scored a season-best nine points. Wade is typically a low-usage floor spacer for the Cavaliers, and in nine total starts this season, he's averaging 4.1 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 three-pointers.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Will start sans Mobley

    Wade will start Friday's game against the Heat, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    With Evan Mobley (knee) sidelined, Wade will draw his eighth start of the season. Across his previous seven starts, Wade averaged 3.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 27.1 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Scores, rebounds well in bench role

    Wade (ankle) finished with eight points (3-6 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and five rebounds across 14 minutes in Wednesday's 121-111 win over the Magic.

    Wade had made four consecutive starts before missing the Cavaliers' previous six games due to a right ankle sprain, but he came off the bench Wednesday with all five members of Cleveland's ideal starting lineup (Darius Garland, Donovan Mitchell, Max Strus, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen) all healthy. Though he shot efficiently from the field and rebounded well during his time on the floor, Wade isn't likely to see his role grow substantially unless a starter misses time again.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Will play off bench

    Wade (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game against the Magic, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Wade has been upgraded from questionable and will be available for the first time following a six-game absence due to an ankle injury. Wade has drawn a handful of starts this season, but he'll operate off the bench with Cleveland close to full strength.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Listed as questionable

    Wade (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Wade has missed six straight games due to a right ankle sprain, but he was able to practice Monday and has a chance to suit up Wednesday. With Caris LeVert (knee) sidelined, Wade could see 15-20 minutes off the bench if he's cleared to suit up.

    Wade (ankle) was able to go through a full practice Monday, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Wade missed the past six games for the Cavaliers, but he's set to return for Wednesday's game against the Magic. With Cleveland mostly healthy outside of Caris LeVert (knee), Wade will likely play a limited role off the bench.
