Adel (knee) scored 20 points (7-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) including the game-winning basket in Thursday's 116-114 victory. He also contributed 10 rebounds.
Forget the double-double, Adel's game-clinching double-clutch basket was a site to behold and certainly one of the two-way player's best moments with Canton to date. Expect Adel to continue starting at power forward so long as he's in the G League.
Adel (knee) did not play in Tuesday's loss to the Mad Ants.
It's only listed as a sore knee, so the two-way player could be in line to return as early as Thursday against Raptors 905.
Adel will come off the bench Monday against the Knicks, FOX Sports Ohio reports.
Adel will give way to Brandon Knight in the starting lineup after struggling across a trio of starts, averaging just 3.3 points and 1.7 minutes across 28.7 minutes.
Adel drew his first career start in Tuesday's 103-96 loss to the Celtics, producing two points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes.
Adel hadn't made much of an impact (2.1 points, 1.1 rebounds in 9.9 minutes per game) while entering the Cleveland rotation in the previous seven games, so it's perhaps not too surprising that he turned in a lackluster line despite receiving a larger role. Cleveland could get Kevin Love (toe) and Cedi Osman (ankle) back for Friday's game in Washington and new acquisitions Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin might also make their team debuts, making Adel a prime candidate to lose minutes or fall out of the rotation entirely.
Adel will draw his first career start in Tuesday's game against the Celtics, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.
Adel, an undrafted rookie, will benefit from a plethora of injuries on the Cavaliers' roster and get the spot-start. He has played sparingly in his seven games with the team, so he figures to see a heavier workload than normal as a starter.
