Head coach John Beilein stated "it's probable" Garland starts at point guard Wednesday against Orlando, Spencer Davies of BBall Insiders reports.
If the team does elect to roll with Garland at point guard, this would move Collin Sexton to the bench. Garland's role doesn't appear to be set in stone this early in the season, but he'll have a chance to lock down the starting job over Sexton with solid play in the early going.
Garland registered 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four assists in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 118-95 loss to the Celtics.
Garland remains an intriguing rookie on a young rebuilding team without much talent. However, Garland will likely have to wrestle the ball away from starting guard Collin Sexton at some point if he's going to be useful across all fantasy formats. For now, Garland might be best reserved for use in deep leagues.
Garland produced nine points (4-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two assists, and one rebound in 14 minutes during Monday's 120-89 preseason victory over San Lorenzo.
Garland has been working hard to get back on the court and looked good during his 14 minutes Monday. The Cavaliers are likely going to take it very easy with the rookie given his injury history but the fact he was out there for a meaningless game is a positive sign. He is a tough player to roster with confidence at this stage but is definitely worth a look with a final-round selection.
Garland (foot) is expected to play in Monday's preseason opener against San Lorenzo de Almagro, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
The No. 5 overall pick has been limited early in camp due to a sore right foot, but he went through a scrimmage Saturday afternoon and practiced in full on Sunday. Expect Garland, who missed most of his freshman year at Vanderbilt, to see action Monday night, and there's a good chance he'll be in the starting lineup alongside last year's first-round pick, Collin Sexton. However, coach John Beilein cautioned not to put too much stock into his starting five and early-preseason rotations. "I don't even know what it's going to be, so that's how you can read into it," Beilein said of Monday's starting lineup. "I'll talk with my assistants. It will be more about what's the minute load we want to get for everybody, and how do we do that. Not sure right now how the game will go, but I'll sort of read into...we'll probably have plans A, B and C, whether it's a blowout our way, a close game, sort of a close game, how we end up playing it."
Garland participated in 5-on-5 contact drills during Saturday's practice, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Garland, who's been hampered by right foot soreness throughout camp thus far, participated in 5-on-5 contact drills Saturday. It was a step in the right direction for Garland, who had previously been limited to non-contact work. The Cavaliers will likely exercise caution with the 2019 5th overall pick, who can continue to be considered a game-time decision for Friday's preseason tilt with Detroit.
Garland (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice but was able to play with no lingering issues, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.
Garland was held out of practice earlier this week with a left foot injury, but head coach John Beilein insisted he was going to be fine. While Garland isn't taking part in full practices yet, he looks to be close to being back to full health given his participation Thursday.
Garland was held out of Tuesday's practice due to a left foot injury, Spencer Davies of BBall Insiders reports.
Garland had been recovering from a "clean-up" knee surgery prior to the NBA Draft, but it's a foot injury that held him out Tuesday. According to head coach John Beilein, the issue is a "little slight thing with his foot, he's gonna be fine," per Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net.
Garland (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Garland, who tore his meniscus in November, had a "clean-up" procedure before the NBA Draft. While it didn't stop him from working out for teams, including the Cavaliers, the team opted to be cautious with the rookie, withholding him from summer league. Since then, he's reportedly been working out to get in game shape. All signs are pointing toward Garland being fully healthy when team activities start up again.
Garland, despite earlier reports that he is unlikely to play in summer league, is listed on the Cavaliers' summer league roster, Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net reports.
There are conflicting reports on Garland's potential availability for Vegas, but things may get cleared up in the coming days. The rookie is a strong candidate to start next to Collin Sexton.
Garland is unlikely to play for the Cavaliers' summer league team, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
While it sounds as though the Cavs have not made an official decision, the organization looks to be leaning heavily toward keeping Garland sidelined when the Utah and Las Vegas Summer Leagues tip off next month. Garland is fully healthy after missing most of his freshman season at Vanderbilt with a torn meniscus, but the team will be careful in bringing him back into competitive basketball situations. The fifth overall pick is expected to travel with the Cavs to summer league, however.
Garland was taken by the Cavaliers with the No. 5 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Garland entered his freshman year at Vanderbilt as a five-star prospect but played just five games on the season due to a knee injury. He's reportedly back to 100 percent following knee surgery and will look to showcase in the NBA the talent he didn't have the chance to show much in college. In the five games he did play he averaged 16.2 points, 2.6 assists, and 3.8 rebounds per game while shooting 54 percent from the field and 48 percent from three. Cleveland took point guard Collin Sexton in the first round of last year's draft and Garland will figure to share the backcourt with him.
Garland has made a full recovery from the surgery he required in November to address a meniscus injury in his left knee and should be available to play in summer-league games, Jonathan Givony of ESPN.com reports.
The knee injury limited Garland to just five games during his freshman season at Vanderbilt, but he validated his status as a five-star prospect in those contests while showcasing some impressive scoring skills. Garland has been conducting individual workouts over the last few weeks, so while the news of his full clearance isn't surprising, it's still a positive confirmation for the 6-foot-2 point guard, who will likely hear his name called in the top five in Thursday's 2019 NBA Draft. Garland has long been rumored to be in play at No. 4 -- a pick currently owned by the Lakers but controlled by the Pelicans -- but Givony relays that the Knicks, owners of the No. 3 pick, brought Garland in for a last-minute workout Tuesday.
