    Ante Zizic returned from a 16-game absence on Saturday night, logging eight minutes and seven points against the Heat.

    Zizic missed 15 games with a vestibular condition (vertigo) and was actually cleared to play on Friday but didn't check into the game. He's not going to sniff the rotation unless the Cavs shut down some of their other frontcourt players so there's no need to pay much attention here.

    Ante Zizic (illness) is probable to play on Friday.

    Zizic was sidelined by a case of vertigo that the Cavs termed a vestibular condition, and even if he's unlikely to see many minutes it's good to know that he's approaching a clean bill of health. The trade deadline couldn't have gone worse for Zizic's prospects, so he's waiver wire material.

    The Cavs announced that Ante Zizic will be out indefinitely with a vestibular condition.

    Zizic had complained of vertigo after being elbowed in the head and one wonders whether this diagnosis could end his season. He hasn't held much fantasy value.

    Ante Zizic (vertigo) will miss Friday's contest against the Grizzlies.

    Zizic isn't really on the fantasy radar for the time being anyway. That may change if the Cavaliers move on from Tristan Thompson and/or Kevin Love.

    Ante Zizic is expected to miss some time after suffering a bout of vertigo, according to Sam Amico of Sports Illustrated.

    Zizic just recently worked his way into the rotation, but he took an accidental elbow to the head from Miles Plumlee on Saturday. He has appeared in just 16 of the Cavs' first 40 game and is averaging 4.3 points and 3.4 rebounds.

    Ante Zizic (illness) will miss Monday's game against the Lakers.

    Zizic has played sparingly. He's only with a shot if you need a high-reward rebounder and the Cavs are down multiple centers.

    Ante Zizic took advantage of some extra minutes once again with five points, nine rebounds, a steal and a block in 16 minutes on Tuesday.

    With Larry Nance Jr. out for at least a few games and John Henson sitting tonight, Zizic was able to get almost enough minutes to be standard-league relevant. He reminded us of his double-double capabilities in the previous game while more Cavs big men were missing. He's just a name to remember in case Kevin Love and more are shipped out of town. Tristan Thompson put up eight points, 15 boards, four assists and two blocks in this game. He's dropped off significantly, but he can be a serviceable last center on your team.

    Tristan Thompson (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Thompson already missed Sunday's contest. He is delivering 12.4 points and 10.3 rebounds per game as well as 0.9 blocks. Ante Zizic had a terrific game on Sunday, while Cedi Osman will also play a lot if Thompson cannot go.

    Ante Zizic put up 15 points and 12 boards on 6-of-7 shooting in a loss to the Wolves on Sunday.

    Zizic saw an expanded role with Tristan Thompson out and capitalized. His role will likely be limited when the team is fully healthy, but he can be used as a DFS option on nights where he is due for big minutes like this one.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (illness) will sit out Friday's game vs. the Magic.

    With Kevin Love out Tristan Thompson would be line for a big night, but he is also questionable for this one. That could mean Larry Nance or Ante Zizic emerge with larger roles tonight.

    Tristan Thompson (rest) is being listed as out for Wednesday's matchup with the Heat.

    With Thimpson out and Larry Nance Jr. (thumb) questionable, Ante Zizic may find himself in the starting unit. The Cavs can also go small and keep Kevin Porter Jr., who is coming off his best game of the season, in the starting lineup.

    Ante Zizic had five points on 2-of-4 shooting and six rebounds in 20 minutes as the Cavs were blown out by the Knicks on Monday.

    It was Zizic's second game back after dealing with plantar fasciitis, but the big minutes are likely be an aberration. This game was a blowout and Kevin Love (back) and Larry Nance Jr. (left thumb sprain) were absent tonight.

    Ante Zizic (plantar fasciitis) will play in Monday's road game against the New York Knicks.

    Zizic just returned from a mult-week absence on Sunday with six points and two rebounds in 17 minutes but with Larry Nance Jr. (thumb), Kevin Love (back), and John Henson (hamstring) all ruled out, he could be thrust into a meaningful role on Monday. He may be a popular DFS play but a wait and see approach should be taken in standard season-long formats as Nance & Love should not be dealing with long term injuries.

    Ante Zizic (plantar fasciitis) is available to play in Sunday's game vs. the Sixers.

    This will be Zizic's debut game and with Larry Nance Jr. out he could pick up some extra minutes tonight. Keep in mind the fact that the Cavs will likely ease him back into the action so he could be on a minutes limit tonight.

    Ante Zizic (plantar fasciitis) is being listed as probable for Saturday's game versus the Sixers.

    Zizic will be making his season debut after missing the entire preseason and regular season thus far. Zizic will be eased along slowly and is still looking at a back up role at best.
