Found September 19, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Cleveland Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett the No. 1 pick in June's NBA draft resumed playing five-on-five basketball this week league sources told Yahoo Sports. Bennett had surgery May 8 to repair a torn left rotator cuff that was expected to keep him out for fourth months. The former UNLV star was not able to play for the Cavaliers' summer league team in Las Vegas because of the injury. Bennett however began playing five-on-five without any restrictions this week for the first time since the surgery. He has played well but needs to get in much better shape as the start of training camp nears. The Cavaliers are expected to start Tristan Thompson at power forward and not use Bennett at small forward this season a source said. It is possible that if center Andrew Bynum isn’t able to return from his lingering knee injury by season’s start that Bennett could become the starting power forward if Thompson moves to center.
