C Jonas Valanciunas; PF Ed Davis; SF Mickael Pietrus; SG DeMar DeRozen; PG Jose Calderon. Coach: Dwane Casey.
C Anderson Varejao; PF Tristan Thompson; SF Alonzo Gee; SG Dion Waiters; PG Kyrie Irving. Coach: Byron Scott.
Waiters (ankle) returned to practice Monday and will play after missing the previous eight games. Waiters is averaging 15.2 ppg. The Cavs are 4-0 when he scores at least 16. Scott didnt indicate whether Waiters or C.J. Miles will start. Miles averaged 22.5 points starting in Waiters absence the past four games. The Cavs went 1-3 in that span. The Raptors have won two straight, both coming without the injured Andrea Bargnani. This is the teams first meeting this season -- and the first between Thompson and Valanciunas. Thompson was the No. 4 overall draft pick in 2011. Valanciunas went fifth (but played overseas last year). Calderon, said to be on the trading block, has played well as the starter. The Cavs lead the all-time series, 36-29.
