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 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.
