Okoro recorded 19 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Pelicans.
The 20-year-old bounced back from Saturday's two-point dud to post his 22nd double-digit scoring output of the season. Okoro was averaging 14.3 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers, 1.0 assists and 0.7 steals while shooting 57.7 percent from the field in his previous three games before Saturday's performance, so Sunday's bounce-back game was an encouraging sign from a developmental standpoint. The rookie out of Auburn has started every game this season and should continue playing heavy minutes for a young Cavaliers team currently sitting in 12th place in the Eastern Conference.
Okoro posted 15 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal in 35 minutes during Thursday's 129-102 win over the Thunder.
Okoro has posted double figures in three straight games, including a career-high 17 points just six days prior. However, this latest performance also took a career-high 13 attempts to reach. Nonetheless, 6-for-13 is an efficient night for the rookie, who also played a team-high 35 minutes. While it is a small sample size, the rookie's minutes and points have actually increased slightly during the four games since Kevin Love's (calf) return. Jarrett Allen's (concussion) imminent return could cause a bit of a logjam in the frontcourt, so it'll be interesting to see how the Cavaliers continue to utilize the No. 5 overall pick.
Okoro finished with five points (1-9 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT) and three rebounds in 27 minutes during Monday's 114-75 loss to the Jazz.
The 22-year-old has now made two total shots over his last two games. Okoro is averaging 3.5 points and 2.5 rebounds with no defensive stats during that span. The rookie out of Auburn has seen his production fall off across the board during the second half of the season. Despite his recent struggles, Okoro should continue receiving heavy minutes on a young Cavaliers team that's falling further out of playoff contention.
Okoro tallied six points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two steals during Monday's loss to Sacramento.
The rookie was held under double figures for a third consecutive matchup, despite earning a good chunk of minutes (28). Over his past three outings, Okoro is averaging 6.0 points per game while shooting 37.5 percent from the floor in 26.7 minutes.
Okoro ended with just two points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and one assist in 28 minutes during Friday's loss to the Pelicans.
The 20-year-old had his lowest scoring output since Feb. 15. Despite the poor shooting night, Okoro continues to start and provide solid 3-and-D stats. Okoro was averaging 1.2 three-pointers and 1.3 steals over his last 10 games before the All-Star break. He's locked in as the starting small forward and should provide decent three-pointers and steals the rest of the way.
Okoro had 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and three steals in 34 minutes during Saturday's 112-109 overtime win at Philadelphia.
The 20-year-old set career highs in points and rebounds before fouling out with about two minutes remaining in overtime. Okoro has experienced his fair share of ups and downs throughout his rookie campaign, but he's averaging 11.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.4 steals in the last five games.
Okoro had 12 points (4-12 FG, 4-11 3Pt), five rebounds, three steals and an assist in Sunday's loss to the Thunder.
Okoro's streak of three straight games with a block came to an end, but he tied his season high with three steals in 39 minutes. Okoro's 11 three-point attempts and four makes were also season highs.
Okoro scored 14 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 34 minutes in Friday's loss to the Nuggets.
Okoro notched a career-high 14 points and scored in double-digits for the fifth time in his last eight games. He also continued to produce on the defensive end of the floor, notching at least one steal and one block for the third consecutive contest. Okoro's stat lines have improved of late, though he continues to provide subpar production in every statistical category aside from steals despite playing 33.0 minutes per game.
Okoro was held scoreless (0-1 FG) in Friday night's loss to the Trail Blazers.
The rookie was coming off double-figure point totals in each of his last two games, but he didn't make much of a mark Friday night, attempting just one field goal and grabbing two boards in 27 minutes of action. It's encouraging that Okoro has started all 22 of his appearances, but he hasn't been nearly productive enough to warrant fantasy attention in most formats.
Okoro tallied 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds, two steals and two blocks over 31 minutes in Friday's 123-105 loss to the Bucks.
Okoro was limited to just six points over the past two games, but he was much more productive against Milwaukee while shooting 40 percent from beyond the arc. The rookie has been inconsistent recently, but he was one of seven Cavaliers to score in double figures in Friday's victory.
Okoro tallied 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four assists and two rebounds in 32 minutes Sunday in the Cavaliers' 109-104 loss to the Timberwolves.
Okoro has played no fewer than 28 minutes in any of his 15 appearances this season, giving him one of the more stable roles of any player on the Cleveland roster. That said, his measly 12 percent usage rate on the season has made it difficult for him to provide consistent production in the offensive categories, making him most useful as a steals streamer -- he's averaging 1.1 per game -- at this stage of his career. The 13 points actually matched Okoro's career high, and he had hit double figures in the scoring column only once in Cleveland's previous six contests.
Over the past seven games, Okoro is averaging 9.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.9 steals and 0.4 blocks in 36.0 minutes.
The Cavaliers haven't been shy about giving the rookie plenty of run. He doesn't stuff the stat sheet, but he's a notably good defender and is helping fuel the Cavs' 10th-ranked defense. Fantasy managers in desperate need of steals can likely take a chance on Okoro but shouldn't expect him to contribute elsewhere regularly.
Okoro notched 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds, an assist and three steals across 40 minutes in Monday's 101-91 loss against the Grizzlies.
Okoro has started Cleveland's last four games since returning from injury and, while he has scored at least 10 points in two of those contests, this was his most productive outing in that four-game stretch. Okoro is making 42.4 percent of his shots in that span.
Okoro will return to the starting lineup Wednesday against the Magic, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
After a five-game absence due to a sprained left foot, the rookie will move right back into the starting lineup, where he spent the first two games of the season prior to the injury. With Darius Garland out, the Cavs will start Collin Sexton at point guard alongside Cedi Osman, Okoro, Larry Nance and Andre Drummond.
Okoro (foot) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Magic.
After a string of five absences due to a foot injury, it looks as though Okoro will make his return to action Wednesday night. He started the first two games of the season before going down, so it's quite possible Okoro could return to the starting five right away. The Cavs have already ruled Darius Garland, Dante Exum, Matthew Dellavedova, Dylan Windler, Kevin Porter and Kevin Love out for Wednesday's contest.
Okoro (foot) will not play in Monday's game against the Magic, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
A sprained left foot will keep the rookie out of a fifth consecutive contest. Consider Okoro day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's rematch against the Magic, which comes on the first night of a back-to-back set.
Okoro (foot) is questionable for Monday's game against Orlando.
Okoro has missed the last four games due to a sprained left foot, but there's a chance that he could return for Monday's contest. If he's unable to play, Cedi Osman could see increased run once again.
Okoro (foot) is listed as out for Saturday's game against the Hawks.
This will mark four straight absences for Okoro, who sprained his left foot during the Cavs' second regular season game. The rookie is without a firm timetable, though it's probably not a great sign that he's been ruled out more than 24 hours before Saturday's contest.
Okoro (foot) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Pacers.
The rookie will miss a third straight game after spraining his left foot in a win over Detroit on Saturday. Okoro is also designated as "health and safety protocols" on the official injury report, so it's possible he could be dealing with potential COVID-19 exposure or contact tracing in addition to the foot sprain.
Okoro (foot) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Knicks.
The rookie will miss a second straight game with a sprained left foot. The Cavs will also be without Kevin Love (calf), so they'll be a bit shorthanded in the frontcourt. With both players out, Cedi Osman is likely to benefit most.
