Dion Waiters likely out for Cleveland Cavaliers vs Charlotte Bobcats

Dion Waiters is sick and probably won't play on Friday night.

USA TODAY Sports

Cleveland Cavaliers starting SG Dion Waiters is likely to miss tonight's game against the Charlotte Bobcats due to an illness. He missed today's shootaround, so it's looking to be a pretty sure thing that he'll be out tonight.

Mike Brown has yet to name his replacement in the starting line-up, but it would appear to be down to two choices: C.J. Miles or Jarrett Jack.

My best guess is that it will be C.J. Miles, unless Mike Brown plans on using Matthew Dellavedova as the PG with the second unit. My biggest hope is that this means some quality minutes for Sergey Karasev, who had a decent game during garbage time against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
