Mike Malone said that Trey Lyles didn’t play on Saturday because his matchup, Jeff Green, was ruled out with an injury.
The Cavs play enough small ball that Malone didn’t want Lyles getting exposed in those situations and decided to keep him on the bench all night. He added that Lyles will be a regular part of the rotation going forward, and any deep league owners that do continue to use him should at least be aware of this possibility when looking at the schedule. The return of Paul Millsap has basically crushed his fantasy appeal.
