Dylan Windler (left leg) suffered a setback and will be out for at least two more weeks at which point, he will be re-evaluated.
Windler has been assigned to the Cavs' G League affiliate, the Canton Charge. At this rate we could expect a 2020 rookie debut from Windler.

Kevin Love bounced back on Thursday, leading the Cavs to a 117-109 win over the Spurs with 30 points on 11-of-24 shooting while adding 17 rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers.
Love had an awful game on both ends of the floor vs. the Rockets yesterday, but he turned it up against the Spurs tonight. The trade rumors will swirl until the deadline passes and he's still an injury risk so now would be a good time to try to float some sell-high offers for a top-50 level player that's more reliable.
December 12, 2019, 11:14 pmKevin Porter Jr.SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Porter Jr. reverted back to his norm on Thursday, scoring five points on 2-of-6 shooting while adding two rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Porter Jr. has great athleticism and his game is much more fantasy friendly than Collin Sexton's but he's still behind Darius Garland (eight points, three rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers). It'll be interesting to see how things progress for the Cavs as Porter and Garland are both intriguing fantasy assets in dynasty leagues and could make some noise if let loose in the back half of the year.
December 12, 2019, 11:13 pmJordan ClarksonPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Jordan Clarkson got hot on Thursday, scoring 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, a steal and four 3-pointers.
Clarkson is still outside of the top-150 in value and a trade won't do much to his value so you can continue to treat him as a deep-league asset for triples.
December 12, 2019, 11:11 pmCollin SextonPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Collin Sexton scored 28 points on 10-of-19 shooting while adding two rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on Thursday vs. the Spurs.
Sexton is the new Andrew Wiggins in fantasy circles as a guy who only scores. He doesn't hit enough 3s (1.0) and is at 0.9 steals per game. He's a point guard only in name (2.4 assists) but if you can stomach the .435 shooting and really need 17.3 points, then he's your guy.
December 12, 2019, 11:09 pmTristan ThompsonC, Cleveland Cavaliers
Tristan Thompson scored two points with seven boards, two assists and a block in 26 minutes of action on Thursday.
Thompson only logged 26 minutes in an OT game and that's mainly due to Larry Nance (zero points, 11 rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes) getting some extra burn. Nance is still a waiver wire guy and Thompson remains a strong hold.
December 12, 2019, 11:08 pmCedi OsmanSF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Cedi Osman scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers on Thursday.
Osman pops up every now and then with a big game, but as of now, he still can't be trusted. If the Cavs shake up their roster, there might be room for Osman to work his way into standard leagues, but his game just isn't as appealing as the Cavs' other young assets.
December 11, 2019, 9:56 pmKevin LovePF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Love had a strong outing in Wednesday's 116-110 loss to the Rockets, finishing with 17 points, 11 boards, two assists, a steal and a block on 8-of-14 shooting.
When Love plays, you can count on mid-round value from him. He is currently sitting as a top-70 player this season. A trade may result in Love playing in more games down the stretch, as well.
December 11, 2019, 9:52 pmCollin SextonPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Collin Sexton ended his Wednesday night with 18 points, a rebound and a steal on 8-of-14 shooting.
Other than the scoring, Sexton doesn't bring much to the table. He's sitting just instead the top-200 now and is only a streaming candidate in standard league at this point.
December 11, 2019, 9:48 pmJordan ClarksonPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Jordan Clarkson contributed in each category on Wednesday, ending with 17 points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers on 7-of-16 shooting.
Clarkson has put together a couple decent games, but hasn't proved he can be trusted nightly in a standard league. He has streaming appeal and should probably be rostered in deeper leagues, however.
December 11, 2019, 9:43 pmKevin Porter Jr.SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Porter Jr. dropped a season-high 24 points to go with two boards, three assists, three steals and six 3-pointers on Wednesday.
Porter Jr. has shown signs of promise on this young Cavs team in his rookie season. He actually led the team in scoring in this contest while coming off the bench. He's worth monitoring in deeper leagues, and someone that might not be on the wires much longer for 16-team leagues or deeper.
December 9, 2019, 9:54 pmTristan ThompsonC, Cleveland Cavaliers
Tristan Thompson was the only player on the Cavs that showed up on Monday, scoring 17 points on 8-of-11 shooting with 11 boards and an assist.
The rest of the team succumbed to the blowout nature of this game and put up awful lines, but Thompson survived. Surprisingly, he's been the best Cavs player in fantasy throughout the year, posting top-75 value in 9-cat leagues.
December 9, 2019, 9:46 pmKevin LovePF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Love scored seven points on 3-of-12 shooting while adding 10 boards, an assist and a 3-pointer on Monday.
The trade rumors are about to be in full swing and while Love didn't show much tonight, he should still be able to put up decent value in triples and boards wherever he lands. His defensive abilities are well documented, but he can still get it done in fantasy.
December 9, 2019, 9:44 pmJordan ClarksonPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Jordan Clarkson led the Cavs in scoring on Monday with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting while adding three boards, three dimes, a steal and three 3-pointers.
Clarkson was one of two players to score in double figures and we'll chalk this up as a fluke performance. He's too inconsistent to be a standard-league guy, but the 3-point streaming appeal is there if you're desperate.
December 9, 2019, 9:43 pmCollin SextonPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Collin Sexton struggled on Monday, scoring eight points on 4-of-14 shooting to go with four rebounds and three assists.
Sexton was one of the many Cavs players who got absolutely stifled tonight as the Celtics ran up the score and won by 22. He has some value in points leagues and for owners who really need buckets, but still can't do it efficiently or hand out enough dimes to ease these bad shooting nights.
