    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.

    Larry Nance Jr. (left thumb sprain) is being listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Sixers.

    Nance is seeing a specialist regarding his injured thumb and barring good news should be expected to sit out some games. With Nance out Cedi Osman should see some extra time playing back up power forward, while Ante Zizic sees some of the center minutes.

    John Henson (right groin strain) returns to practice Monday, but remained limited per Cavs head coach John Beilein.

    Tomorrow it will be decided if Henson is ready for the Cavs' season opener on Wednesday in Orlando. His opponent for the back-up center minutes, Ante Zizic, remains absent with left foot soreness.

    Ante Žižić (plantar fasciitis) is expected to miss roughly four weeks.

    Žižić has missed all of the Cavs' preseason games and will continue to miss time as the regular season approaches. He is best left undrafted as he is not high on the depth chart even when healthy.

    Ante Zizic (left foot) was spotted using crutches on Thursday.

    The Cavs haven't said much about Zizic's injury other than a vague mention of "foot soreness," but this isn't good news for him. Buried behind Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr., there's no need to target Zizic in fantasy drafts.

  • Tristan Thompson
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavs are have ruled Tristan Thompson (right groin soreness), John Henson (right groin strain) and Ante Zizic (left foot soreness) as out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    With the trio of big men sitting out, it could again be a lot of Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. tonight. It's worth noting that Jarell Martin is starting at C for the Cavs tonight.

    Ante Zizic (left foot soreness) and John Henson (right groin strain) have been ruled out of Sunday's preseason game versus the Celtics.

    Both Zizic and Henson should not be a focus in standard leagues for as long as Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance are healthy and available.

    Ante Zizic (left foot soreness) has been ruled out of Friday's preseason game.

    Zizic is going to struggle for playing time this season as long as Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson are healthy. He remains a potential deep-league target but it'll take some patience.
