The former Clemson standout will have a tough time making the Rockets' final 15-man roster after training camp concludes. A more realistic outcome is that he lands a deal with team's G League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
Blossomgame hasn't been available for any of the Cavaliers' games in the Salt Lake City or Las Vegas Summer Leagues due to a stress fracture in his leg, Chris Fedor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. The forward is expected to make a full recovery in around three weeks.
Blossomgame is apparently still with the Cavaliers in Las Vegas, even though the organization opted not to extend him a qualifying offer in advance of the summer slate. The injury thus comes at an unfortunate time, as he'll miss out on an opportunity to showcase his talents to prospective teams that may have been interesting in signing him this offseason. Blossomgame should be back to full strength well in advance of NBA training camps, but it may be too late for him to make a serious run at a roster spot by that point.
The Cavaliers aren't planning to extend Blossomgame a qualifying offer for 2019-20, meaning he'll become an unrestricted free agent July 1, Chris Manning of Cleveland Magazine reports.
Reports surfaced over the weekend that the Cavaliers are earmarking one of their pair of two-way spots for undrafted rookie Dean Wade, and the organization appears set to facilitate that by parting ways with Blossomgame.

Blossomgame amassed a career high in blocks while matching his best rebounding total. This is the third time through 19 appearances that the rookie has hauled in 10 boards. Blossomgame had earned double-digit minutes in 12 of 14 appearances in December, but this is the first time through five January appearances that he has seen more than nine minutes.
Bloosomgame will come off the bench in Wednesday's game against the Heat, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.
Blossomgame was a regular in the Cavaliers' rotation for almost all of December, and after starting the last four games, he'll come off the bench upon the return of Rodney Hood (Achilles). Blossomgame, however, should still see some quality minutes off the bench as the Cavaliers continue to find roles for their younger players.
Blossomgame will draw the start Friday against Miami, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports.
Blossomgame will slot in as the starting small forward, marking his second start in three contests. He failed to enter the scoring column over 22 minutes in his previous start against Chicago.
Blossomgate will draw the start in Sunday's game against the Bulls, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.

Blossomgame has now gotten 20 minutes in each of the last two games, averaging 11 points and 4.5 rebounds over that stretch. While he has been efficient when he has played, he doesn't create for himself much at all, rendering him a utility player until otherwise demonstrated.
Blossomgame scored 11 points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two assists and a block in 26 minutes off the bench during Monday's 108-92 loss to the Bucks.
The rookie continues to see his minutes increase, and Blossomgame responded with his best NBA performance yet. The rebuilding Cavs have nothing to lose by seeing what the 25-year-old can give them as a regular part of their frontcourt rotation, but Monday's numbers could end up representing his ceiling, and not his standard output.
Blossomgame will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Bucks, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports.

Blossomgame signed a two-way deal with the Cavaliers on Sunday, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
The Cavs will add the 2017 second-rounder, who had been playing with the Canton Charge on a G League contract. Blossomgame will likely spend time at both levels going forward, as the Cavs try to use what's looking like a lost season to get some looks at younger players.
Blossomgame tallied 26 points, five rebounds and three assists in the win Tuesday over the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
Blossomgame wasn't able to match his double-double from Saturday's contest, but he was once again the team's highest scorer, making 10 of his 17 field goal attempts on the evening. While he's not much a three-point shooter, Blossomgame has provided a sturdy presence in the paint for Austin and remains a reliable fantasy asset in most formats.
Blossomgame registered a double-double in Friday's win over Northern Arizona, recording 23 points and 10 rebounds.
The forward even canned a triple, showing some range in what was otherwise a mundane scoring affair. Blossomgame demonstrated he could be a fantasy relevant asset last season when he posted 16.5 points and 8.1 rebounds across 50 games in the G-League.
