Cavaliers' Jae Crowder: Plays 23 minutes Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowder posted 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt), five rebounds and one steal across 23 minutes in Thursday's 104-103 victory over the Magic.

Crowder's role in the offense will never exceed Thursday night's effort because of the players surrounding him. He was extremely efficient when he had his chances and hit both of his threes, but he only shot five times from the floor, capping his upside. Playing in the starting lineup may be a curse for his stats, but his defense and solid perimeter shooting makes him a solid forward to round out the Cavs' lineup moving forward.

Cavaliers' Isaiah Thomas: Leads Cavaliers with 21 points Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas tallied 21 points (6-15 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four assists, three rebounds and two steals across 30 minutes in Thursday's 104-103 victory over the Magic.

Thomas has yet to boast a solid efficiency from the floor in any of the contests he has played, but it is encouraging to continue to see his point production rise further removed from injury. While he may not attempt 10 threes every night, he has shown that even with the best player in the league on his team, he can still produce with the opportunities he gets. Look for Thomas to take a big step in the right direction soon, and take the Cavs team as a whole with him.

Cavaliers' Derrick Rose: Will play limited minutes Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rose (ankle) has been cleared to play Thursday against the Magic, but will have a minutes restriction, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.

Rose will be returning to the lineup after a little over two months on the sidelines, opting to continue his playing career despite rumors regarding a potential retirement due to recurring injuries. Look for Rose to come off the bench as a reserve point guard behind Isaiah Thomas and he's fully expected to be eased into the action, so he'll only field limited minutes for now. Fantasy owners will likely want to steer clear for the time being until his role is clarified over the next few weeks. That said, he could cut in the minutes of Dwyane Wade, who's been acting as a ball-handler in the second unit for much of the season.

Cavaliers' Iman Shumpert: Listed as out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cavaliers listed Shumpert (knee) has out for Thursday's game against the Magic.

Shumpert, who has been out since the end of November following knee surgery, returned to practice Wednesday, but it looks like the shooting guard still isn't ready to make a full-time return to the floor. The Cavaliers will likely be in no rush to bring Shumpert back, but his next opportunity to return will be Saturday against Oklahoma City.

Cavaliers' Derrick Rose: Upgraded to probable vs. Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cavaliers have Rose (ankle) listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Magic.

Rose made a return to practice Wednesday and now it appears as though the point guard is going to make his long-awaited return to the floor Thursday. Rose has been out since early November due to an ankle sprain, and given his lengthy absence, the point guard will likely be limited Thursday. Expect an official update on Rose's status and any minutes restrictions to come later on Thursday.
