First the bad news- Cavaliers Uber-Rookie Kyrie Irving suffered what the team is calling a sprained shoulder in the second quarter. He hit the ground with his shoulder (the same shoulder he separated in high school) but played through the pain and finished the game with 29 points, shooting a perfect 6-6 from behind the arc. Irving did not play in the fourth quarter.
Anderson Varejao wants to come back. Daniel Gibson may not have a choice.
The only two members of the Cleveland Cavaliers who wore Wine and Gold during the 2007 NBA Finals could realistically spend the last month of the 2011-12 NBA season in street clothes. The veterans, both who would be labeled as “cagey,” are nursing two completely different injuries — Varejao, a wrist fracture...
The Cleveland Cavaliers signed guard Lester Hudson to a 10-day contract on Friday, and he is available tonight against the Bucks. To help familiarize you with Hudson, below are video highlights recapping a game he played against Stephon Marbury in China:[youtube]W4saVk5ESu4&feature=fvst[/youtube]In January of 2011, Lester Hudson signed with the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the...
Sloan, Harris get chance with Gibson out
The Cavaliers will have to adjust to playing without guard Daniel Gibson for likely the rest of the season. Not that he was having a great season. Just the opposite. His trusty jump shot had abandoned him for much of the season.Backup guards Donald Sloan and Manny Harris have been forced into major minutes. Both of them have left observers...
Anderson Varejao is still recovering from a broken wrist.
The Cleveland Cavaliers (17-31, 11th in the East), losers of 5 straight and 8 of their last 9 since their impressive mini win streak against Denver, Oklahoma City, and Houston have now officially fallen behind Detroit in the standings and have Sacramento square in their sights.
The Cavaliers’ next opponent, the Milwaukee Bucks (23-27, 9th in the East) and in the middle of a chase...
The Cavaliers announced this afternoon that rookie point guard Kyrie Irving is listed as questionable for tonight’s game at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks. Irving, the Cavaliers leading scorer, sprained his right shoulder last night at home versus Milwaukee in the second quarter. He continued to play for the third quarter and finished with 29 points, then left...
The Cavaliers have signed guard Lester Hudson to a 10-day contract.
Hudson had been playing with Austin of the NBA's Development League. He will be available for Friday's home game against Milwaukee.
The Cavs are short in the backcourt following an injury to Daniel Gibson, who has a torn tendon in his foot and will likely miss the rest of the season. Cleveland has dropped...
From the Cavaliers-
The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed guard Lester Hudson from the Austin Toros of the NBA Development League, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today.
Hudson has appeared in five games (two starts) for the Toros this season, averaging 17.6 points on .532 shooting, 6.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.4 steals in 29.2 minutes per game. The 6-foot-3, 190...
Last night will go down as one of the more difficult evenings to swallow in this condensed 66-game campaign. The Cavaliers chipped paint off the rim at their end while they were helpless to stop the onslaught that was the Milwaukee Bucks offense. Milwaukee overwhelmed the Cavaliers right out of the gate, and other than Kyrie Irving, the Cavaliers were unable to get anything going...

The Milwaukee Bucks were a locomotive, and the young Cavaliers were planted firmly on the tracks. The Bucks shot 57% and made 50, yes, 50 field goals as they absolutely obliterated the Cavaliers in Quicken Loans Arena 121-84. Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting, while Ersan Ilyasova added 20 and 10 rebounds. Kyrie Irving flashed his brilliance with...

After finding out Kyrie Irving was going to sit this one out, I set the over/under for Cavs points at 73. I was pretty close. Take note: Manny Harris only got in the game for the last minute. Sloan played 34 minutes and Hudson (signed 2 days ago) played 24 minutes. Message sent.
