  • Cavaliers' Isaac Okoro: Scores 11 points vs. Charlotte

    Okoro finished Sunday's 120-110 loss to the Hornets with 11 points (3-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and six assists across 29 minutes.

    Okoro drew his 42nd start of the season Sunday due to Donovan Mitchell (knee) and Darius Garland (back) being sidelined. Okoro managed to dish out six assists for the third time this year, and he finished the regular season averaging 9.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists over 27.3 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Leads Cavs in scoring Sunday

    Niang posted 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt), one rebound and one assist across 23 minutes during Sunday's 120-110 loss to the Hornets.

    Niang saw an increased role on offense Sunday with the Cavaliers resting multiple players including Donovan Mitchell (knee) and Darius Garland (back). Niang hit on four threes for the 10th time of the season as he led Cleveland in scoring. He finishes his first regular season with the Cavaliers averaging 9.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists over 22.3 minutes per contest while playing all 82 games.

  • Cavaliers' Max Strus: Records first career triple-double

    Strus amassed 14 points (5-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds and 11 assists in 31 minutes during Sunday's 120-110 loss to the Hornets.

    Strus was more involved in the offense Sunday with Donovan Mitchell (knee), Darius Garland (back) and Caris LeVert (knee) all sitting out of the Cavs' regular-season finale. Strus took advantage of the expanded role as he registered the first triple-double of his career and a career-high 11 assists. He ends his first regular season in Cleveland averaging 12.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists over 32.0 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Craig Porter: Exits due to injury

    Porter has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Charlotte after suffering an apparent left ankle sprain in the first quarter, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    With Darius Garland (back) sitting out the regular-season finale, Porter drew the start but was limited to just 10 minutes of court time before exiting with the injury. He totaled two points (1-2 FG), three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block before departing. Fedor notes that Porter wasn't putting any weight on his injured leg upon exiting the court, so the rookie's availability for the start of the Cavaliers' postseason run could be in question.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Officially out

    Garland (back) will not play in Sunday's game against the Hornets, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.

    No surprise here, as Garland was deemed doubtful heading into Sunday. He will now set his sights on getting his health back up to par before Cleveland's playoff bid tips off. In his absence, Craig Porter will start at point guard.

  • Cavaliers' Isaac Okoro: Starting Sunday

    Okoro will start at shooting guard in Sunday's matchup with the Hornets, Serena Winters of Bally Sports Cleveland reports.

    With Donovan Mitchell (knee), Darius Garland (back), Caris LeVert (knee) and Sam Merrill (neck) all sidelined, Cleveland will be thin at depth in its regular-season finale. As a result, Okoro will start on the wing alongside Max Strus and figures to see a relatively heavy workload.

  • Cavaliers' Craig Porter: Starting in regular-season finale

    Porter is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Charlotte, Serena Winters of Bally Sports Cleveland reports.

    With Darius Garland (back), Donovan Mitchell (knee) and Caris LeVert (knee) out, Porter is set for his sixth start of the season, with his prior contests on the first unit yielding 11.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 blocks in 31.6 minutes per game. Porter's rookie year has been a ringing success after a five-year collegiate tenure.

  • Cavaliers' Ty Jerome: Out for season finale

    Jerome (ankle) won't play Sunday against Charlotte.

    Jerome has been sidelined since Oct. 30 and underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle in late January. He remains without a timeline for a return and is most likely being viewed as out for the season.

  • Cavaliers' Sam Merrill: Won't play Sunday

    Merrill (neck) is out for Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    Merrill will miss his third straight contest Sunday due to a neck strain. His next chance to suit up will come in Cleveland's first-round matchup in the playoffs.

  • Cavaliers' Caris LeVert: Out against Hornets

    LeVert (knee) won't play against the Hornets on Sunday.

    LeVert will be held out due to soreness in his left knee, but the Cavaliers are most likely just resting him in advance of the postseason. The 29-year-old finishes the regular season with averages of 14.0 points, 5.1 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 1.6 three-pointers and 1.1 steals in 28.8 minutes per game over 68 appearances.

  • Cavaliers' Donovan Mitchell: Ruled out for Sunday

    Mitchell won't play Sunday against the Hornets due to left knee injury management.

    The Cavaliers will give their franchise guard the regular-season finale off as they give his knee some extra rest for the playoffs. Mitchell will close the regular season with averages of 26.6 points, 6.1 assists, 5.1 rebounds, 3.3 three-pointers and 1.8 steals in 35.3 minutes per game over 55 appearances.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Doubtful for Sunday

    Garland is doubtful for Sunday's game against Charlotte with a lower back contusion.

    With the playoffs looming, it appears the Cavaliers will give Garland the night off. Additionally, the Cavaliers have already ruled out Donovan Mitchell (knee) for this contest.

  • Cavaliers' Donovan Mitchell: Drops game-high 33 points

    Mitchell finished with 33 points (12-27 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, five assists and four steals over 38 minutes during Friday's 129-120 victory over the Pacers.

    Mitchell led all scorers with 33 points, helping the Cavaliers to a hard-fought victory. Having now secured the fourth seed, Cleveland is assured of a home playoff series, much to the delight of their fans. Should they hope to make any noise in the playoffs, they are going to need for Mitchell to be at his absolute best.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Quiet in victory Friday

    Garland amassed 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-5 3Pt), two rebounds and four assists across 29 minutes during Friday's 129-120 win over the Pacers.

    Garland was noticeably passive in the win, attempting just 11 field goals en route to 16 points. Although he has been able to increase his production over the past two weeks, the same cannot be said for the season as a whole. Given how disappointing he has been, there is a good chance he is available at a nice discount next season, especially if he can take on a larger responsibility on the offensive end.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Hits three triples in win

    Niang closed with nine points (3-10 FG, 3-8 3Pt), five rebounds and two steals over 27 minutes during Friday's 129-120 win over the Pacers.

    Niang did his thing, connecting on three triples as the Cavaliers secured a crucial victory. The two steals were a nice bonus, but not something managers should be expecting. While he has established himself as a consistent part of the rotation in Cleveland, he has no sustainable fantasy value.
