Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Set for extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (ankle) is expected to miss an "extended period of time," per Chris Fedor of

The oft-injured guard suffered this latest ailment Monday against Miami, leaving the game in the first half with what now looks to be a fairly severe sprained left ankle. Exum already missed extensive time earlier in the season with a knee issue, and he's dealt with several serious injuries through his first five NBA seasons. The No. 5 overall pick in 2014 has been limited to just 91 total games since the start of the 2017-18 campaign.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (ankle) won't play in Wednesday's contest against Philadelphia, Sam Amico of reports.

Exum suffered a sprained left ankle during the Cavs' win over the Heat on Monday and wasn't able to return. Moreover, the Australian will now miss his first game since Jan. 11, when he was tending to an illness. Matthew Dellavedova could see increased run as a result of Exum's absence versus the 76ers.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Out with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum won't return to Monday's game against the Heat due to a left ankle sprain, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports.

Exum limped off the court under his own power after suffering the injury, but the team has since ruled him out for the rest of the evening. Kevin Porter and J.P. Macura could see more time off the bench with Exum down for the night.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Solid outing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum generated 14 points (3-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in Saturday's loss to Miami.

Exum, who saw extended minutes again, managed to reach double figures for a second consecutive game. Although he's shot the ball well since joining Cleveland, Exum's been limited to 17.2 minutes per contest on average. Due to his relatively limited role, he's been unable to return consistent fantasy value and is averaging just 5.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. Unless he can find his way to an increased workload, Exum's not a viable option beyond the deepest of leagues.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: To join starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum will start Tuesday's game against New Orleans, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

Exum is set to take the place of Darius Garland, who is getting the night off for rest purposes. This marks Exum's first start of the 2019-20 campaign.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Logs 15 minutes versus Wizards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum managed two points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes during Thursday's 124-112 loss to the Wizards.

Exum has earned at least 12 minutes in all 12 of his appearances since being acquired by the Cavaliers, this after averaging 11.1 minutes in December and 6.8 minutes in November. However, apart from one isolated performance against the Timberwolves back on Jan. 5, Exum hasn't been much of a factor from a statistical perspective. Given that the team is likely to continue prioritizing the development of Collin Sexton and Darius Garland, Exum is probably best reserved for use in deep leagues.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Set to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (ankle) told Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer he will play Saturday at Chicago.

The 24-year-old was considered questionable after suffering a right ankle sprain this week, but it won't prevent him from suiting up Saturday. Exum is averaging 7.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 17.2 minutes over nine games since being acquired by the Cavaliers.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Questionable with sprained ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Bulls due to a sprained right ankle.

Exum has emerged from Friday's loss to the Grizzlies with a sprained ankle, though he may still play Saturday. Across his past nine games, he's averaging 7.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 17.2 minutes.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Disappointing effort Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (illness) managed just one point, three rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes during Monday's 128-99 loss to the Lakers.

Exum was back in action after missing the previous three games due to illness. Considering Exum had erupted for a career-high 28 points in his last outing before falling ill, Monday's performance represented a big letdown to those who may have scooped him off the waiver wire on speculation and held on to him while he battled the ailment. He should still be someone to keep an eye on for at least the next few games, although his track record certainly doesn't bode well for his rest-of-season outlook.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Available vs. Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (illness) is listed as available for Monday's game against the Lakers.

Exum has been cleared to return Monday in Los Angeles after missing the past three games due to an illness. Through his first six games with Cleveland, Exum is averaging 10.3 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 16.5 minutes.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (illness) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Lakers.

Exum hopes to return after a three-game absence due to the ailment. He's averaged 16.5 minutes per game over six contests since joining the Cavaliers.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Listed as out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (illness) is listed as out for Saturday's game against Denver.

Exum is apparently battling a fairly severe illness, as this will be his third consecutive absence. The last time he took the floor, he went for a career-best 28 points on 11-of-13 shooting in a loss to Minnesota (Jan. 5).

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Listed out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (illness) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Pistons.

Exum is apparently still battling the same illness that kept him out of Tuesday's game against Detroit. His next chance to play will now arrive Saturday.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (illness) will not play Tuesday against Detroit, Sam Amico of reports.

Exum came down with an illness and will miss his first game since joining the Cavs via trade. The absence comes on the heels of Exum's best game of the season Sunday against Minnesota, when he went for a career-best 28 points on 11-of-13 shooting in 24 minutes.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Scores career-high 28 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum had a career-high 28 points (11-13 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Sunday's 118-103 loss to the Timberwolves.

Exum exploded in the second half, scoring 24 of his 28 points as the Cavaliers came roaring back from a 25-point deficit. Exum barely missed a shot in what was the signature performance of his injury-plagued career. The Jazz castoff benefited greatly from Kevin Porter (knee) exiting early, and Exum may find himself in a more consistent role moving forward if Porter is forced to miss extended time. He's not someone to run and grab in 12-team leagues at this point, but Exum should certainly be on the radar in case Porter receives bad news after undergoing an MRI onMonday.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Plays 15 minutes in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum had nine points, two steals and one assist in 15 minutes during Friday's 129-117 loss to Boston.

Exum made his debut for the Cavaliers, ending with nine points in 15 minutes. His role is unclear at this point; however, this is certainly a favorable landing spot. The Cavaliers are likely to see what they have in Exum and his defensive upside is something the Cavaliers are lacking. He is worth a speculative pickup in deeper formats to see if anything eventuates.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Available Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum is available for Friday's game against the Celtics, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exum didn't play Monday versus the Heat shortly after the trade announcement, but he practiced Thursday and is ready to go for his new team. The 24-year-old averaged 2.2 points and 1.1 rebounds in 7.5 minutes over 11 games with the Jazz, but coach John Beilein said he should work in a sizable role off the bench for the Cavaliers, though he may not do so immediately, per Tim Bontemps of

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Dealt to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum was traded from the Jazz to the Cavaliers on Monday in exchange for Jordan Clarkson, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

It's safe to assume that Exum won't play in Utah's matchup Monday against the Heat following the trade announcement. Considering the Cavs don't take the court again until Friday in Boston, there's a good chance he'll be available to make his Cleveland debut later in the week. Exum figures to add depth off the bench in the backcourt, though his minutes have been limited this season while with the Jazz. He's averaging just 2.2 points and 1.1 rebounds in 11 games this year.

Jazz's Dante Exum: Limited role again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum ended with nine points and two rebounds in 11 minutes during Sunday's 130-110 loss to Toronto.

Exum continues to work his way back from injury but is yet to put everything together. His career has been littered with numerous injuries that have not allowed him to build off of any momentum. The hope remains that he will one day be a key piece for the Jazz, however, that seems a long way off at this point.

Jazz's Dante Exum: Makes season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (knee) played 14 minutes off the bench in Monday's 112-102 loss to the Timberwolves, contributing two points (1-4 FG), one steal and one block.

Exum was cleared to make his season debut Saturday in Memphis, but the Jazz ultimately chose to keep him on the bench in the one-point loss. Coach Quin Snyder expanded the rotation to include Exum on Monday, and while the sixth-year guard made a limited impact across the stat sheet, he brought his usual effort on the defensive end. Exum probably won't see his playing time pick up much from here, especially while backcourt starters Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell are both healthy.
