Making his second straight start with Collin Sexton (concussion) out, Osman played a game-high 38 minutes but was unable to capitalize on the increased opportunity.

Osman will start Monday's game against the Raptors, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
With Collin Sexton (concussion) set to miss another game, the Cavs will stick with the same lineup from Sunday's 119-110 loss to Washington. Coming off of five straight DNP-CDs, Osman played 37 minutes and went for 19 points, five assists, two rebounds, a steal and three three-pointers. It's no guarantee that he'll see such a heavy workload again, but Osman makes for an appealing, low-cost flyer in DFS contests.

Osman had been out of the rotation for each of the last five games, but he was thrust into the starting five with Collin Sexton (concussion) sidelined to close out the weekend. The 26-year-old essentially filled all of Sexton's minutes and turned in a quality line, but he'll be at risk of dropping back into a much smaller role -- or falling back out of the rotation again -- as soon as Sexton is back. Sexton seems unlikely to clear the concussion protocol ahead of the second game of the back-to-back set Monday versus the Raptors, so Osman should have at least one more game of elevated minutes.
