Osman paced the Cavs in scoring and in minutes played in a lopsided win over the hapless Suns. The sophomore from Turkey has provided Cleveland with reliable scoring on a nightly basis, averaging 31.4 minutes per contest. His scoring will likely take a small dip once Kevin Love gets back up to game speed, but Osman will still remain a viable fantasy asset for the rest of the season.
As expected, Osman played fewer minutes than usual, clocking in at only 25 while still getting the start. He's been given extended playing time this season on a rebuilding roster, and he's made the most of his opportunities, averaging career highs in points (12.6), rebounds (4.6) and assists (2.3).
Osman will have his minutes limited Wednesday against the Cavs, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Osman has been cleared to play after missing the last four games, but he'll face an unspecified minutes restriction as the Cavs exercise caution ahead of the All-Star break. When healthy, Osman typically plays 30-to-35 minutes, but he'll likely be capped somewhere in the 20s on Wednesday.
Osman (ankle) is available Wednesday against the Nets.
A sprained left ankle has kept Osman out over the past four games, but the second-year forward will make his return Wednesday. There's a strong chance he'll return to the starting lineup.
Osman (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Brooklyn.
Osman has been held out of four consecutive matchups because of a left ankle sprain, and his status remains in question for Wednesday's tilt. The Cavs could use a combination of Larry Nance and Marquese Chriss at power forward if Osman is ultimately ruled out.
