The Cleveland Cavaliers will be without a few players tonight. Notably, Collin Sexton will miss his second straight game with an ankle issue. Secondly, Kevin Love is resting due to a sore right Achilles, Cedi Osman is out with an ankle issue and Kevin Porter Jr. remains out due to what the team is calling ‘personal issues.’
That means the Cavs will be starting with Darius Garland, Damyean Dotson, Isaac Okoro, Larry Nance Jr. and Andre Drummond. It’s unclear now if there will be any minutes restrictions a la Drummond playing only in the first Saturday. If so, it could be more heavy minutes for the likes of Thon Maker, Marques Bolden and others at the end of the Cavs’ bench.
In short: You might be able to turn this game off (or just have it on your phone instead of your TV) by the time Browns-Ravens kick-off on Monday Night Football.
