Both Matthew Dellavedova and Iman Shumpert left Tuesday's Game 3 worse for the wear. Fortunately for the Cleveland Cavaliers, both will able to play in Game 4.

According to Cavaliers coach David Blatt, Dellavedova and Shumpert will both play on Thursday vs. the Golden State Warriors. Dellavedova went to the hospital last night due to cramping and dehydration, while Shumpert briefly left the game in the first quarter due to what was later reveled to be a shoulder bruise. Blatt also noted that Dellavedova will be on am minutes restriction, although Delly doesn't seem to agree.

Dellavedova had a playoff career high 20 points in 39 minutes in Game 3, only scored 3 points but played 32 minutes and was active on defense. Considering that both are starters, both players being healthy and able to play is huge for a Cavs team that is already down Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. Game 4 tips off at 9 p.m. on Thursday in Cleveland.
