Wade didn’t get a maintenance day despite some nagging bumps and bruises, perhaps in an effort to get acclimated to his new bench role. The Cavs have tried a few lineup configurations now but Wade coming off the bench makes the most sense from a pure basketball perspective. It might even help restore some of his value, as there’s little doubt that he could return at least late-round value if things start to click. Keep an eye on your waiver wire in case an impatient owner cut bait, though you don’t need to drop something of legitimate value to make a move. Shumpert is only relevant in deep leagues and should be considered questionable for Cleveland’s next game.
