Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters still has a loose fragment of cartilage in his knee and the team has not ruled out arthroscopic surgery this summer. Waiters recently missed 10 games due to the injury but he has since returned to play in the Cavs’ two past contests. It appears as if he will suit up the rest of the way.
Per Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon-Journal:
“It feels good,” Waiters said about his knee. “I’m jumping and dunking. If I can do that, then I’m ready to go.”
If the Cavaliers do elect to have Waiters go under the knife, he will still be ready for training camp next season. The only thing that he could miss would be Summer League.
In 59 games through the 2012-13 season, the recent fourth-overall pick has averaged 14.6 points (41.0 percent), 2.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per contest.
