Cedi Osman returned from a four-game absence with a sprained left ankle on Wednesday and produced 13 points (5-of-10 shooting), five rebounds, three assists and two triples in 25 minutes as starter.
Osman should be able to resume posting late-round value once he gets his legs back. He displaced Larry Nance Jr. who still delivered a decent performance with eight points (3-of-12 shooting), 14 boards, two assists, two triples and one block in 33 minutes. Nance remains the guy to own here thanks to his superior stat set. Do not be fazed.

The Cavs changed their starting lineup and settled on Collin Sexton, Brandon Knight, Cedi Osman, David Nwaba and Ante Zizic for Wednesday night.
Zizic takes the place of Kevin Love (rest) and Osman returns from his ankle injury to replace Larry Nance Jr. It's a big letdown since Nance is the only non-Love Cavalier to be of interest in 12-team leagues. We'll see how long this lasts.

Cedi Osman (sprained right ankle) is available to play in Wednesday's game against the Nets.
Osman will return from a four-game absence tonight. His hot start to the year is a distant memory now as he's outside the top-175 on the full season, but deep-league owners can get him back into lineups tonight.

Cedi Osman (sprained right ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Nets.
Osman has missed four straight games but looks to be nearing a return. It'd be a mild surprise if the Cavs pushed one of their few promising young players right before the break, but if he's truly 100 percent then there's no harm. Osman isn't a 12-team asset, and should lose some touches as Kevin Love ramps things up, but he's still a viable option in deeper leagues.

Cedi Osman (sprained right ankle) is out vs. the Knicks on Monday.
Osman has missed the last three games and it looks like this will make it four. With Kevin Love slowly making his way back into the rotation, don't be afraid to drop Osman if you need to.

Cedi Osman (sprained right ankle) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Knicks.
It's an upgrade for Osman, who has missed the last three games with the injury. It's possible he takes advantage of huge volume to grind out late-round value but we're not running to the wire to scoop him back up, especially with Kevin Love back.

Kevin Love (left foot) will play on Friday vs. the Wizards and is expected to start though he’s not likely to play on Saturday.
Owners stashing Love for months finally have some good news. It’ll take a while for Love to shake off the rust and get into game shape so you might not want to activate him right away, but it’s great news he appears to be back. We’ll see how his return impacts the Cavs’ frontcourt, with Ante Zizic on deck to lose the most minutes with Cedi Osman and Larry Nance Jr. also likely to have their production dinged.

Cedi Osman (right ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Wizards.
Osman left Saturday's game without returning before missing Tuesday's and now Friday's games. It's not a major injury, but they won't him back. With Alec Burks and Rodney Hood on their way out, there are some more shots to go around when Osman does return. Jaron Blossomgame and David Nwaba should fill in Osman's minutes.

Cedi Osman (right ankle) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Celtics.
Osman left Saturday's game and was unable to return. It didn't seem like a major injury but obviously the Cavs have nothing to gain by asking one of their few promising young players to push through any discomfort. Alec Burks, David Nwaba and Jaron Blossomgame should all benefit from Osman's absence.

Cedi Osman (right ankle) will not be returning in the second half against the Mavs in Saturday's matchup.
Before leaving the game, Osman record 10 points, three assists, two rebounds and one steal at the half. This is a tough blow for the Cavs in this game but it should be nothing too serious after reportedly walking out on his own from the bench. Stay tuned in the coming days regarding his status for the next game.

Cedi Osman went to the locker room after injuring his right ankle against the Mavs in Saturday's bout.
One silver lining here is that he went to the locker room without assistance, and could be an instance of just adding extra protection to his injured ankle. Osman has been playing out of his mind in the past week with averages of 21.5 PTS on 48 percent shooting, 6.5 REB, 4.5 AST and 3.0 3PTM. Keep an eye out on how the Cavs will handle his injury.

Cedi Osman shot 10-for-16 from the field for 26 points with five boards, seven assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Wizards on Tuesday.
My, oh my. Osman is on a tear right now and has entered must-own status while he is hot. The Cavs have every opportunity for the youth movement to take shape, which means Osman has the green light likely for the rest of the season. Grab him off your wire if you still can.

Cedi Osman kicked things up another notch in Friday's 94-100 loss to the Heat with 29 points (career-high) on 11-of-20 shooting, adding four rebounds, four assists, three triples and two steals.
This is the second straight game where Osman has taken his individual performance to another level. He recorded a new career-high in points (25) in Wednesday's loss to the Celtics. He's on a heater right now and is worth holding as he tests the limits of his fantasy ceiling.
January 23, 2019, 10:22 pmCedi Osman - F - Cleveland Cavaliers
Cedi Osman scored a career-high 25 points with eight rebounds, two assists and six 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Celtics.
This was a surprisingly good game from Osman, and is now slightly on the up-swing. However, he didn't have a defensive stat and he shot 8-for-11 from the field and 6-for-7 from beyond the arc, something you cannot count on moving forward. He's still not a recommended option outside of deep points leagues or deeper leagues if you need points and rebounds.
January 20, 2019, 1:18 amCedi Osman - F - Cleveland Cavaliers
Cedi Osman scored 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting (1-of-3 3PTs, 4-of-5 FTs) with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in Saturday's loss to the Nuggets.
None of these guys are good in fantasy leagues. Not Osman, not Rodney Hood (18 points, two threes, two steals, 6-of-6 FTs), not Collin Sexton (10 points, four rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one three), not Alec Burks (eight points, four rebounds) and most definitely not Cameron Payne (zero points, three assists, 20 minutes).
