Dion Waiters Questionable vs. Detroit Pistons with Ankle Sprain

US PRESSWIRE

The Cavaliers just cannot stay healthy. After losing Kyrie Irving for a month with a broken finger and seeing both of their young big men wearing protective masks, Cleveland may be without rookie Dion Waiters vs. Detroit.

The Cavaliers are still having terrible luck with injuries this season. Or if you're the optimist, I guess this is actually an instance of good luck. After Dion Waiters rolled his ankle by stepping on another player's foot in Cleveland's loss to Portland, I thought he may miss a handful of games. According to the team, he may have dodged a bullet.

The team announced via Cavs.com that Waiters had an MRI on his ankle following the game against Portland. The MRI confirmed an ankle sprain, but nothing more. He is officially questionable for Monday's game against the Detroit Pistons.

X-rays taken at the arena last night were negative. Waiters had a follow up exam today at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health, including an MRI, that confirmed the left ankle sprain. He is receiving treatment, will travel with the team to Detroit this afternoon and is currently listed as Questionable (50/50) for tomorrow night’s game against the Pistons.

We will probably get more of an idea about Dion's health when Byron Scott talks to the media today at shootaround. Without Dion Waiters on the court, the Cavs are currently scoring 15.3 points per 100 possessions less than with him.
