Chriss registered 10 points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 20 minutes in Monday's 126-119 victory over the Pistons.
Chriss did not need much time to collect his first double-double of the season, although the 20 minutes was more than he is used to seeing on a per-game basis. Chriss hasn't shown much promise aside from a few games here and there, making him an unreliable option on a roster full of options in Cleveland.
Chriss was handed a one-game suspension following Monday night's altercation with Serge Ibaka, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Ibaka and Chriss both threw punches in the second half of Monday's clash, although Chriss was slapped with a mere one-game suspension while Ibaka will be banned for his team's next three contests. Chriss will be eligible to return for the Cavs on Thursday against Atlanta.
Chriss was ejected from Monday's game against Toronto after getting into an altercation with Serge Ibaka, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Chriss was thrown out of the game after punches were thrown by each player. He finished the contest with three rebounds and a block over 14 minutes. It's unclear if he'll be facing a suspension at this point.
Chriss will start in place of the resting Kevin Love for Saturday's matchup against the Pistons, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Chriss will make his second start since joining the Cavaliers, and he should see extended run with both Kevin Love and Ante Zizic (concussion) sidelined. In the four games with the Cavs that he's seen at least 20 minutes, Chriss has averaged 14.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal.
Chriss finished with 23 points (9-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and an assist over 28 minutes in the Cavaliers' triple overtime loss to the Nets on Wednesday.
Chriss came off the bench but still contributed valuable minutes in Wednesday's loss. The 23 points were a season high, and the rebounds and steals contributed to a highly productive night for Chriss. He's likely to get 20 minutes a night moving forward even when Kevin Love can return to full-time action.
Chriss finished Monday's 107-104 win over the Knicks with 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, an assist and a steal in 22 minutes.
After making a spot start Saturday against the Pacers for a resting Kevin Love, Chriss moved back to the bench Monday. Despite the demotion, Chriss didn't see much of a decline in playing time and enjoyed an efficient night from the field while contributing well on the glass. It looks like he'll stick in a regular role in the Cavaliers' rotation for the time being, though Chriss will be a candidate to see his minutes take a hit once Cedi Osman (ankle) is back in action.
Chriss will start Saturday's game against the Pacers, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports.
Chriss will be moved into the starting five, replacing Ante Zizic, for his second game with the Cavaliers. In his debut Friday against Washington, Chriss recorded 13 points and eight rebounds, making 5-of-10 shots from the field.
Chriss will be on a minutes restriction for Saturday's matchup against the Pacers, Jim Ayello of USA Today Sports reports.
On the second half of a back-to-back set, coach Larry Drew will look to lighten the load on Chriss. The Cavs' newcomer played 23 minutes during his team debut Friday, setting season highs in points and rebounds.
Chriss finished with 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and eight rebounds across 23 minutes during Saturday's Cavaliers debut against the Wizards.
Chriss set season highs in minutes, points and rebounds in his Cleveland debut, and the change of scenery could lead to a consistent role. With the Rockets, he was ousted from the rotation quickly as the team struggled during the early goings. However, on the rebuilding Cavs, the coaching staff will likely have more patience with Chriss, the former No. 8 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. His increased role may have been in part due to the only brief, six-minute return of Kevin Love. Once Love settles into a more normalized role, Chriss could see a reduction in minutes. Chriss will also be competing with the likes of Larry Nance Jr., who the organization showed a strong commitment to in the summer of 2018 by signing him to a four-year, $44.8 million extension. That said, the situation represents a boost in fantasy value for Chriss overall.
Chriss will be available to play in Friday's game against the Wizards, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports.
Chriss was traded to Cleveland two days ago as apart of a three-team deal with the Kings and Rockets, and while Houston did not have much incentive to play him, the Cavaliers should be inclined to see what they have with Chriss. Cleveland does currently boast a high number of young frontcourt players, however, so while Chriss should be in line to see the floor on a fairly consistent basis, it may not be for many minutes right off the bat.
Chriss was dealt to Cleveland ahead of Wednesday's tilt with the Kings, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Chirss, who's played sparingly this season -- averaging just 1.8 points and 1.8 rebounds in 6.5 minutes per game, was dealt along with Brandon Knight and a 2019 first-round pick to the Cavaliers as part of a three-team deal that sent Iman Shumpert to the Rockets and Alec Burks and a second-round pick to the Kings. Chriss will join a crowded Cavaliers frontcourt, and should slot in behind Kevin Love and Cedi Osman at power forward although his exact role going forward has yet to be determined.
Chriss played 11 minutes Sunday in the Rockets' 116-109 loss to the Magic, finishing with two points (2-2 FT) and four rebounds.
The Rockets have held Nene Hilario out for rest or restricted his playing time in the last two games, allowing Chriss to re-enter the rotation and pick up double-digit minutes on both occasions. Hilario is good to go for the second half of the back-to-back set Monday against the Grizzlies, but more minutes at center will be available with starter Clint Capela (thumb) sidelined. That theoretically opens the door for Chriss to receive even more run than he did Sunday, though it may not be a huge uptick after the Rockets recalled Isaiah Hartenstein from the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers to offer some frontcourt reinforcement.
Chriss (ankle) is not listed on the injury report for Monday's game against the Jazz, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Chriss is good to go after missing the previous six games with a sprained ankle. He hasn't played a big role for the Rockets when healthy this season, averaging just 2.1 points and 1.1 rebounds across 5.9 minutes per game (nine games).
Chriss (ankle) is probable for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Chriss has missed five games due to a sprained left ankle, but there's a strong possibility he returns Saturday. That said, his role on the team has been relatively minimal. In nine appearances, he's averaged 2.1 points and 1.1 boards in 5.9 minutes.
Chriss (ankle) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Lakers, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.
Chriss is still nursing a sprained ankle, and he'll miss a fifth straight game. His next chance to play will arrive Saturday in Memphis.
Chriss (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game with the Trail Blazers, Alykhan Bijani of the Athletic reports.
Chriss will likely miss a fourth game with an ankle sprain, although an official designation will be given closer to tipoff. In nine games this season Chriss has managed 2.1 points and 1.1 rebounds in 5.9 minutes.
Chriss will not play in Saturday's game against the Mavericks due to a sprained ankle, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Chriss did not enter Friday's game against the Jazz in garbage time, and it appears this is why. Chriss hasn't been part of the Rockets' regular rotation this season, however, so his absence won't have an impact on the team Saturday in Dallas.
Chriss had his fourth-year option declined by the Rockets on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Chriss made his season debut Tuesday after recovering from an ankle injury, posting four points, two rebounds and one block across eight minutes. Regardless, the Rockets aren't prepared to lock Chriss in for the $4.1 million he was set to make next season. He'll become an unrestricted free agent next summer as a result.
Chriss contributed four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, and one block in eight minutes during Tuesday's 104-85 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Chriss made his season debut for his new team after missing the first five tilts of 2018-19 due to an ankle injury. Chriss is an athletic young big man with some theoretical small-ball center and power forward potential, and the Rockets would be wise to leave no stone unturned given their 1-5 start. With that being said, Chriss was a foul magnet who didn't defend well or score efficiently in his first two years, albeit with the less-than-stellar Suns.
Chriss (ankle) is not listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
As expected, Chriss will suit up and make his Rockets debut Tuesday after practicing the last two days. Chriss has been out since the preseason, so he will likely be eased back into the rotation, but the 21-year-old will provide the Rockets with some much-needed depth behind starter Clint Capela.
