Cleveland is dealing with an ankle injury and has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pacers.
Cleveland just inked a 10-day contract with the Hawks earlier in the day, so his listing on the injury report is certainly surprising. The exact severity is unclear at this point in time, but his next shot to make his Atlanta debut will come on Monday against the Lakers. Cleveland is unlikely to make a fantasy impact once cleared to play.
After going undrafted out of Southeast Missouri State in June, Cleveland inked a training-camp deal with the Warriors, only to get waived at final roster cuts. The shooting guard stuck around with the Warriors' G League affiliate at Santa Cruz and attracted the attention of the Mavericks, who signed him to a two-way contract. Cleveland made his NBA debut in mid-November and logged 13 appearances for Dallas, averaging 0.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in 6.2 minutes per game before being waived in December. The Hawks will give Cleveland a trial coming out of the All-Star break and see if he can crack an unsettled backcourt rotation, but the 24-year-old may need to make a quick impression if he hopes to stick around for the rest of the season.
Cleveland was waived in part for the team to sign Kyle Collinsworth to a two-way contract. Cleveland appeared in just 13 games with the Mavericks, totaling 81 minutes and posting 10 points, 10 rebounds, six steals, four blocks and two assists. He spent significant time in the G-League, however, averaging 13.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.6 steals across 26.6 minutes. Assuming he gets another chance somewhere, there seems like a strong chance it will be in the G-League.
Cleveland has spent the early start to the season in the G-League with Santa Cruz but should now get some limited opportunity to work in the NBA with the Mavericks. On a two-way contract, however, Cleveland will still spend majority of his time in the G-League and be a depth option when in Dallas.
