Osman is being rested and will not play during Wednesday's summer league action against the Kings, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.
Osman has appeared in two summer league tilts, posting 40 points, 16 rebounds, nine assists, five steals and two blocks across 63 minutes. With the departure of LeBron James, Osman may step into a bigger role this season.
Osman tallied 25 points (9-18 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block across 31 minutes during the Cavaliers' 93-88 win over the Pacers in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Monday.
Osman's point haul led all scorers on the afternoon, and he's now averaging 20.0 points over his first two games in Las Vegas. The 23-year-old was also impressive on the boards and as a facilitator, offering what the Cavaliers hope is a preview of what he'll bring to the table in the coming season.
Osman posted 15 points (5-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, four steals, three assists and a swat across 31 minutes during Friday's 72-59 summer league win over Washington.
With LeBron James now in Los Angeles, Osman should play a significant role for the Cavs next season, with Friday's performance being a great start. Though he struggled from the field, he was dynamic on both ends of the floor. Per 36 minutes last season, Osman averaged 12.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 steals.
Osman, a second-round pick in 2015, made his NBA debut last season for Cleveland. He appeared in 61 games, averaging 3.9 points and 2.0 rebounds across 11.0 minutes while hitting 36.8 percent of his threes. Osman also drew 12 starts, posting 9.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 23.4 minutes during those contests.
Osman will enter the starting five for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Knicks, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.
With Kyle Korver (foot) being given the night off for rest, Osman will slot into the shooting guard spot in the Cavs' lineup. In 11 starts this season, Osman has averaged 8.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 22.0 minutes.
