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.
Okoro won't play in Sunday's game agains the 76ers due to a left foot sprain, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The rookie will be held from the second half of the back-to-back set after apparently suffering the foot injury in Saturday's 128-119 double-overtime win over the Pistons. Despite playing 42 minutes in the contest, Okoro was largely a nonentity, finishing the night with zero points (0-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds and one steal. Look for Cedi Osman to enter the starting five in Okoro's stead.
Okoro had 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-2 FT) and five assists in Wednesday's win over the Hornets.
It was a strong debut for the Cavs as a whole, and Okoro fit in well as the starter at small forward over Cedi Osman. While he took only five shots, Okoro was efficient from the field, and his defensive versatility kept him on the floor for 34 minutes -- the most of any Cavaliers player behind Collin Sexton (37).
Okoro will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's season-opener against the Hornets, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
A few weeks ago, this would've registered as a surprise, but Okoro showed well during the preseason and will presumably get the nod at small forward over Cedi Osman. The rookie out of Auburn does not project as an overly valuable fantasy commodity, but that could change if his solid three-point shooting during the preseason carries over.
