Garland (shoulder) is expected to play Friday against the Nets, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said he expects Garland to play Friday, but the injury report has him listed as a more conservative "questionable." There's a chance it will come down to a game-time call, and Garland figures to move into the starting five if he's available.
Cavaliers head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that he expects Garland (shoulder) to be available for Friday's game against the Nets, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.
After returning to practice Monday as a full participant, Garland was upgraded to questionable ahead of Wednesday's matchup with Brooklyn, but he ultimately sat out the Cavs' 147-135 win in double overtime. Based on Bickerstaff's post-game comments, the Cavs seemingly just wanted to give Garland some extra maintenance, so barring any setbacks, the second-year guard will likely put an end to his eight-game absence Friday. Look for Garland to immediately step back into a starting role in the backcourt alongside Collin Sexton, which will likely result in Cedi Osman moving to the second unit.

Garland (shoulder) will not suit up for Saturday's game versus the Bucks.
The Cavaliers announced Wednesday that Garland could be out for up to another week, which would mean the second-year guard could be in line to miss as many as the next three contests.

Garland was previously sidelined for Monday's loss to the Magic, and the Cavaliers' latest report suggests that it's probably safe to rule him out through Thursday's game in Memphis, the second contest of a back-to-back set. The Cavaliers plan to reevaluate Garland on a daily basis while he receives treatment for the shoulder, so he might have an outside shot at returning to action Saturday in Milwaukee if he responds well to rehab work. For at least the next two games, however, look for Collin Sexton to serve as the Cavaliers' primary point guard.

Garland apparently suffered the injury during Saturday's loss to the Hawks, which he finished with a season-low eight points to go with two boards and two assists. Keep an eye on his status after shootaround Monday morning.
Garland only scored eight points (3-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding two rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in Saturday's win against the Hawks.
Garland has improved his play compared to the 2019-20 season, but the recent shooting woes are a bit concerning. Through his last three games, the second-year floor general has made just 37 percent of his field-goal attempts, though he's also shooting an impressive 44.4 percent from beyond the arc in that span. Garland is averaging 17.2 points per game in 2020-21 while logging 35.8 minutes per contest.
Garland scored 17 points (6-18 FG, 3-8 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds, six assists and two steals in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.
Garland struggled to find his shot from all areas of the floor, but particularly struggled close to the hoop. While hardly a reason for panic, Garland has made only 13 of his 33 field-goal attempts in his last two games after beginning the season by shooting 16-for-27. Despite the poor shooting, he did manage to chip in six assists, a mark he has met or exceeded in all four contests this season.
Garland produced 14 points (7-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt), seven assists and two steals across 29 minutes in Sunday's 118-94 win over the Sixers.

Garland scored 21 points (9-14 FG, 3-3 3PT) to go along with 12 assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block in 44 minutes during Saturday's 128-119 win over Detroit.
Garland continued his hot start to the year, scoring over 20 points in back-to-back games for the first time in his young career. The 20-year-old recorded the highest mark of his short tenure for assists in a game as six Cavaliers scored in double digits. Alongside fellow guard Collin Sexton, the two are proving to be a dangerous scoring backcourt early in the season.
