Cavaliers' Brodric Thomas: Dominant in loss
Thomas posted 25 points (10-21 FG, 5-12 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block over 34 minutes in Saturday's 116-107 loss to Long Island.
Thomas was quite productive during his six games after joining the Charge, and he topped 20 points in three of his last four appearances of the season. Across 14 games with the Charge and Vipers during the G League campaign, Thomas averaged 18.5 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists over 33.5 minutes per contest.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Matthew Dellavedova: Timeline remains murky
Dellavedova (appendectomy) resumed traveling with the Cavaliers during the team's recent two-game road trip, but he remains without a clear timeline to make his 2020-21 debut, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Dellavedova has been sidelined for much of the campaign due to a severe concussion he suffered in the Cavs' preseason opener. He appeared to have made a full recovery from the head injury before requiring an emergency appendectomy on Feb. 20. Cleveland is listing Dellavedova as out indefinitely following that procedure, but his presence on the sideline in the team's recent games suggests he's made some progress on some level. The Cavaliers will presumably re-evaluate Dellavedova when the team reconvenes for practice after the All-Star break. Still, even when he receives full medical clearance, the 30-year-old won't be a lock to crack head coach J.B. Bickerstaff's rotation regularly.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Larry Nance: Expected back after break
The Cavaliers anticipate that Nance (finger) will be ready to play in their first game after the All-Star break March 12 at New Orleans, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Nance has been sidelined since Feb. 6, when he exited the Cavs' blowout loss to the Bucks with what was later diagnosed as a fractured finger on his left hand. He underwent surgery two days later and has made rapid progress in his recovery, shedding the cast on his injured hand just over a week ago. He's since been cleared to take part in shooting workouts, and he plans to use the All-Star break to get his conditioning back in order and work his way into game shape following a month-long layoff. Assuming his surgically-repaired hand presents no issues when the Cavaliers reconvene for full-contact practice next week, Nance should be ready to rejoin the lineup against the Pelicans without any restrictions. Before getting hurt, Nance started in 18 of his 19 appearances and averaged 9.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.3 three-pointers in 33.4 minutes per game, but his playing time and production could take a hit in the second half with Kevin Love (calf) also believed to be close to a return from an extended absence....

Cavaliers' Brodric Thomas: Productive against Delaware
Thomas recorded 18 points (5-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five assists, four rebounds and one steal over 34 minutes in Wednesday's 103-97 loss to the Blue Coats.
Thomas wasn't particularly efficient from the floor Wednesday, but he tied for the team lead in scoring during the narrow loss. He's now averaging 17.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists over 33.5 minutes per contest this year.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Collin Sexton: Tops 30 points again
Sexton racked up 32 points (12-25 FG, 2-5 3PT, 6-6 FT) to go along with four rebounds, 10 assists and three steals across 43 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.
Sexton saw massive volume across the board, topping 40 minutes for the third straight game. He also posted a 32.7 percent usage rate, which he combined with efficient shooting to top 30 points for the second consecutive game. Topping off Sexton's performance was his first double-digit-assist effort of the campaign, though he also turned the ball over six times for the second straight game.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Taurean Prince: Plays 19 minutes in return
Prince scored five points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt) to go along with three rebounds and four assists across 19 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.
Prince missed five of team's last six games with an ankle injury but returned off the bench for Wednesday's contest. However, he had a fairly quiet performance and was outplayed by Dean Wade. Kevin Love (calf) may be set to return after the All-Star break, which would only make it more difficult for Prince to carve out significant minutes.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Jarrett Allen: Scores efficiently in loss
Allen scored 17 points (6-7 FG, 5-5 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds and one assist across 29 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.
Allen played under 30 minutes for the first time in six games. However, he continued to score efficiently and is shooting 67.3 percent from the floor across his last 10 games. More impressive was Allen's effort from the free-throw line, as his shooting from the charity stripe has progressively deteriorated since joining the Cavaliers.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Career-high 17 points
Wade scored 17 points (6-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt) to go along with six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 31 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.
Wade remained in the starting lineup even with Taurean Prince's return and topped 30 minutes for the first time in his career. He took advantage of the opportunity by drilling five threes for a career-best 17 points. However, Wade's role could be set to shrink after the All-Star break, as it's possible Kevin Love (calf) will be healthy enough to play for only the third time this season.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Questionable to return Wednesday
Garland is questionable to return Wednesday after suffering a left groin strain against the Pacers, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
Garland managed to log 16 points and five assists before injuring his groin Wednesday against the Pacers. While he was able to return to the bench after being evaluated in the locker room, the severity of the injury is unclear, but it's likely he'll be held out with the team heading into the All-Star break....

Cavaliers' Taurean Prince: Available Wednesday
Prince (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game against Indiana.
The 26-year-old missed five of the past six games but will return to action for the final game before the All-Star break. Prince has been an intermittent starter for the Cavaliers, so Dean Wade could remain in the lineup after starting the last four contests.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Taurean Prince: Questionable vs. Pacers
Prince (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.
Prince has missed the past two games due to a personal issue and ankle injury, but he could return for the Cavaliers' final game before the All-Star break. If he does, that could mean fewer minutes for the likes of Dean Wade, Dylan Windler and Lamar Stevens.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Dishes out seven dimes
Garland had 14 points (5-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and three steals across 30 minutes in Monday's win over the Rockets.
Garland ended as the Cavaliers' second-best scorer behind Collin Sexton's 39-point performance, but he also looked impressive as a distributor and recorded seven assists. The second-year guard has now dished out seven or more assists in five straight games.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Collin Sexton: Erupts for 39 points
Sexton registered 39 points (12-20 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 11-15 FT), eight assists, three rebounds and two steals across 42 minutes in Monday's win over the Rockets.
Sexton looked absolutely dominant on the offensive end of the court and posted his second-best scoring output of the campaign, as he netted 42 points in a Jan. 20 matchup with the Nets. Sexton is Cleveland's go-to player on offense and is delivering as such, scoring at least 20 points in nine straight contests.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Jarrett Allen: Puts up another double-double
Allen had 10 points (5-7 FG), 15 rebounds, an assist and a block across 31 minutes in Monday's win over the Rockets.
Allen is firmly entrenched as the Cavaliers' starting center and continues to produce on a nightly basis -- he has eight straight double-doubles while scoring at least 20 points in three of his last six contests. Allen is a secondary scoring option behind names such as Collin Sexton and Darius Garland, but he is clearly delivering value on both ends of the court and should remain a reliable fantasy asset moving forward due to his steady role as a starter.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' JaVale McGee: Scores in double figures
McGee scored 10 points (5-7 FG) and tallied five rebounds along with three blocks in 17 minutes Monday against the Rockets.
McGee has now logged 11 or more minutes in eight of his last nine contests, and he's swatted away eight total shots in his last three. The backup center scored in double digits for the first time since Jan. 24 vs. Houston on Monday.... See More ... See Less
