  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Shut down for regular season

    Cavaliers head coach JB Bickerstaff said Friday that Wade (knee) won't play in Cleveland's final two regular season games, and his availability for the playoffs is uncertain, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Wade will miss his 18th and 19th straight games due to a right knee sprain to close out the regular season. In his last two appearances before being shut down with the injury, Wade had started and played 30-plus minutes on both occasions, but the Cavaliers were without Evan Mobley at that time. With Mobley now healthy, Wade will likely be ticketed for a small backup role in the frontcourt if he's cleared to play at some point during the postseason.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Rest of season in jeopardy

    Wade's knee soreness is now being diagnosed as a knee sprain, and it's unclear if he will be able to return this season, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Wade has not taken the court since March 8, being sidelined for the last 12 contests. Fedor notes that Wade's knee "finally started making progress recently after the latest form of treatment," and that the coaching staff still regards him as day-to-day. His injury absence began just two games after booming for a career-high 23 points to fuel a comeback win over Boston on March 5. Wade has dealt with a myriad of lower body injuries dating back to his days at Kansas State, and he has been limited to a total of just 149 games across the past three seasons. Wade is doing "everything possible" to return to action, but it's safe to say that he can be ruled out for Cleveland's upcoming back-to-back set versus Utah and Phoenix on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Unavailable Sunday

    Wade is out for Sunday's game against Brooklyn while tending to a personal matter.

    Wade's defensive versatility and occasional offensive contributions have been a huge stabilizing force in Cleveland's frontcourt this season, but his absence will loom even larger than normal Sunday with Evan Mobley currently in the midst of a multi-game absence due to an ankle sprain. Sam Merrill, Georges Niang and Caris LeVert could all absorb some extra minutes as a result while Cleveland likely leans on smaller lineups with two key big men unavailable in addition to two other starters in Donovan Mitchell (knee) and Max Strus (knee).

    Wade put up a career-high 23 points his last time out while Merrill was limited to just six points over 30 minutes as a starter, so Wade will now have an opportunity to shine. He's worth a dice roll in daily fantasy leagues, while Merrill is a much less attractive target in the reserve role.
