Garland (groin) won't play Tuesday against the Bulls, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.
Garland continues to deal with a strained left groin, and Tuesday will mark his fifth straight absence. Per Russo, coach J.B. Bickerstaff said at the Cavs' morning shootaround that he expects Garland to play at some point during the team's six-game road trip, so the rookie is apparently still being viewed as day-to-day. With Kevin Porter Jr. (concussion) also out, expect Collin Sexton and Matthew Dellavedova to again see extended minutes for the shorthanded Cavs.
Garland (groin) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Spurs, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.
Garland hasn't been able to resume practice since straining his groin a little over a week ago, so his absence for the second half of a back-to-back set comes as little surprise. The rookie will likely need to put in an on-court workout Monday or during morning shootaround the following day to have a shot at playing in the Cavs' next game Tuesday in Chicago. Matthew Dellavedova should pick up elevated minutes for the duration of Garland's absence.
Garland (groin) won't play Saturday against the Nuggets.
As expected, Garland needs some more time to recover from his strained left groin. In his absence, Matthew Dellavedova should continue to see significant run.
Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Friday that Garland (groin) isn't expected to play Saturday versus the Nuggets or Sunday against the Spurs, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.
The rookie first-round pick didn't practice Friday but was able to go through an individual workout. Garland missed the last two games with the left groin strain and it appears his absence will stretch to at least four contests.
Garland (groin) will not play Wednesday against the Celtics, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

Garland is listed as out for Monday's game against Utah due to a left groin strain, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.
Garland apparently picked up the injury during Saturday's loss to Indiana, in which he played 30 minutes and finished with 10 points and five assists. The rookie has started all but one game this season, with his only absence coming on Jan. 28 versus New Orleans.
Garland compiled six points (3-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt), six assists and one steal across 28 minutes Sunday in the Cavaliers' 133-92 loss to the Clippers.
Garland's production was trending up for most of January, but he's noticed a backslide in his stats over the Cavaliers' last 10 games. During that stretch, Garland hasn't been entirely disastrous with averages of 12.2 points, 4.5 assists, 1.9 three-pointers and 1.8 boards, but a 34.6 percent mark from the field is tough for fantasy managers to swallow. In addition to the efficiency issues, Garland could see his shot volume suffer slightly now that Andre Drummond has stepped in as the starting center for the lower-usage Tristan Thompson.
Garland generated 16 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes during Thursday's 115-109 loss to the Raptors.
Garland returned to the lineup following a one-game absence for rest purposes, and he appeared rejuvenated after managing six points on three-of-10 from the field to go with four assists in 25 minutes during Monday's matchup versus the Pistons. Garland remains fairly inconsistent, but he has at least showcased some steady improvement over the course of the campaign.
Garland is expected to return to action Thursday against the Raptors after resting Tuesday against New Orleans.
The Cavs opted to rest the rookie on the second night of a back-to-back, but he should be back in the lineup Thursday night. Garland is not listed on the team's injury report.
Garland will be rested for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.
It looks to be a simple maintenance day for the rookie, as the Cavs play on the second night of a back-to-back. Garland is coming off of a rough night in Monday's win over Detroit -- he posted six points, four assists in 25 minutes -- but prior to that, he'd scored in double figures in 15 consecutive games. Over that span, Garland posted averages of 14.9 points, 4.9 assists, 1.7 rebounds and 1.0 steals.
Garland had 16 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 3PT, 1-1 FT), five assists and two rebounds in 38 minutes during Saturday's 118-116 loss at Chicago.
Garland continues to thrive, and he has gone 12 straight games scoring in double digits while also delivering five or more assists in five of his last six contests. The rookie point guard endured a tough start to the season, but he seems to have turned a corner of late and is averaging 15.7 points and 6.0 assists per game during January. He must do a better job at taking care of the ball, however, as he is also averaging 3.2 turnovers per contest during the first month of 2020.
Garland had 14 points (5-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 128-103 loss to the Clippers.
After a rocky start to his rookie season, Garland has started to hit his stride. The double-double Tuesday was the first of his career and bolsters his case for being a must-roster option in 12-team leagues. In addition to reaching double figures in scoring in each of his last 10 games, Garland is converting at a 46.2 percent clip from the field while chipping in 5.6 assists, 2.2 three-pointers, 1.7 rebounds and 1.2 steals per outing.
Garland finished with 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt), four assists, two rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes during Monday's 128-99 loss to the Lakers.
Garland continues to trend in the right direction, turning in another solid performance. Over the past two weeks, Garland has been a top-100 player thanks in large part to his increased assist numbers. Passing is certainly not a strength for the Cavaliers and so Garland is going to have plenty of opportunities to run the offense. Efficiency can be an issue at times but his recent play has been nothing short of encouraging.
Garland had 18 points (8-16 FG, 2-9 3PT), eight assists and two steals in 38 minutes during Saturday's 111-103 win at Denver.
Garland was extremely inconsistent during the first two months of the season, but he has now scored in double digits in each of his last eight outings. The rookie point guard is averaging 16.3 points with 5.3 assists per game over that stretch, and he has dished out seven or more dimes in four of his last six appearances. He will have a tough assignment Monday at the Lakers.
Garland scored 20 points (8-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and tacked on seven assists and two rebounds in a victory over the Pistons on Thursday.
Garland seems to be finding his rhythm in the NBA, putting up 16.0 points, 4.9 assists and 2.3 triples per game over his last seven outings, while shooting 84.2 percent from the line in that span. One game after posting 14 points, three dimes and two steals against this same Pistons squad, the rookie did well to find his shot, with an efficient 57.1 percent from the field in this one. He's produced standard league value over the past five games, and is certainly someone to keep an eye on over the second half of the season.
Garland had 14 points (4-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four boards, three assists and two steals in 36 minutes of a 115-113 loss to the Pistons on Tuesday.
Garland scored in double figures for the sixth consecutive game and eighth time in the last nine contests in his team's loss. However, it was not a pretty outing as he made just 33.3 percent of his shots from the field in the outing, posting an identical shooting line to his previous game. The rookie is continuing to adjust to the NBA, but he'll likely continue to see the floor as the Cavs try to give him room to grow. He'll face the Pistons again on Thursday.
Garland had 20 points (6-13 FG, 3-7 3PT, 5-6 FT), seven assists, one rebound and one steal in 35 minutes during Saturday's 121-106 loss against the Thunder.
Garland has scored in double digits in six of his last seven games, but he has reached the 20-point mark just five times this season. The rookie point guard has been wildly inconsistent, but he seems to be finding a groove of late and is averaging 14.4 points, 3.6 assists and 2.7 rebounds during that aforementioned seven-game stretch. He will look to produce another strong outing Sunday against Minnesota.
Garland racked up 14 points (5-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes during Thursday's 109-106 loss to the Hornets.
Garland finished with a career high in assists while matching his career high in rebounding. He has also reached double figures in scoring in seven of his last nine appearances, as the rookie point guard has begun to pick it up after a slow start to the season.
Garland had 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-4 3PT, 0-1 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes during Saturday's 94-88 win at Minnesota.
Garland had one of his best shooting performances of the season, and he seems to have turned a corner of late. Aside from scoring in double figures in five of his last seven contests, he is also shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from deep over that span -- both figures are above his regular-season numbers. The rookie out of Vanderbilt will try to extend his solid run of play Tuesday at Toronto.
Garland (ankle) has been cleared to play Saturday against the Timberwolves, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Garland was originally tagged questionable due to a sprained right ankle, but he's feeling good enough to play following some pregame activities. This month, he's averaging 11.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 28.2 minutes.
