Waiting For Next Year:
Cleveland Cavaliers rookie shooting guard Dion Waiters will miss at least the next week with an injury to his left knee.
Waiters was examined earlier on Tuesday and was determined — via MRI – to have small, loose cartilage fragement. He will undergo a period of tests and treatment while being subject to additional observations and examination. Following one week’s time, he will be evaluated on the next steps of his treatment and recovery, which could include an arthroscopic procedure.
Waiters, in his freshman campaign, is averaging 14.9 points and 3.1 assists per game. He had been initially relied upon to take the brunt of the scoring responsibility following the injury sustained by point guard Kyrie Irving. It is believed that Wayne Ellington will start in Waiters’ place. Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott has also mentioned the potential for the Cavaliers to add another body as the team currently has several inactive players.
The Cavaliers’ regular season ends on April 17 in Charlotte.

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters will miss the rest of Cleveland's game against Indiana with a sore left knee.
Waiters scored four points in the first quarter, but didn't play in the second. The Cavaliers announced in the third quarter that he would be held out the rest of the game as a precaution and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.
Waiters, the No. 4 pick...
Already without Kyrie Irving, the Cavs will now lose Dion Waiters for at least one week with loose cartilage in his knee. The team has not ruled out arthroscopic surgery, but after the week, he will be re-evaluated.
According to The Plain Dealer:
Dion Waiters will miss at least a week after an MRI on Tuesday revealed loose cartilage in his sore left knee, the Cavaliers announced...

His teammates called him "Elvis" because of his fame. They laughed when he donned a wig and sunglasses so he could walk around a mall without being noticed.
Yes, LeBron James was big news when he joined the Cleveland Cavaliers 10 years ago, But could anybody have envisioned back then the prodigy from Akron, Ohio, would end up being this legendary of a player?
As a skinny...
Whenever LeBron James comes to Cleveland, the discussion begins.
Will James return to the Cavaliers? Will he remain with the Heat? Will he wind up in some other unsuspected destination?
Theyre all legit questions.
We have nothing close to the answers to any.
All we know for sure is the Heat have won 23 straight games, or just 10 shy of the all-time NBA record, entering Wednesdays...
The Cleveland Cavaliers had a heck of a lead over the Miami Heat tonight. It looked the Cavs had a good shot at stopping the streak. The Cavaliers went into the locker room at the half with a 55-34 lead over the heat. The Cavs were playing some great basketball and they were doing it without 2 over their first round picks over the last 2 season. Both Waiters and Irving were out for...
CLEVELAND -- LeBron James is back in Cleveland, which means the question had to be asked.
Actually, the idea of James returning the Cavaliers someday probably didnt need to be brought up at all, but you knew someone would do it, anyway.
Unlike two seasons ago -- when James hinted playing for the team that drafted him was a possibility -- he gave the politically correct response...
Most people are not expecting much from the Cleveland Cavaliers at this point. They are a young, inexperienced team and they are playing without their All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving. Most teams see the Cavs on the upcoming schedule and think it is going to be an easy win.
But that has not been the case lately.
Cleveland is not just rolling over and riding out another lottery...
am sitting in the corner of a dimly lit room and the smiling face of CJ Miles looms over my right shoulder. The only illumination to be found comes from low-wattage track lighting which hangs from the ceiling and the glow from a wall of monitors that cascades the front of this otherwise neutral-toned space. This wall, split into seven main columns, houses roughly three-dozen...

It is too early to say that Cavalier’s owner Dan Gilbert struck gold the summer of 2011? Landing top pick Kyrie Irving seems an assured victory in Cleveland but it’s just now that Gilbert’s draft haul is beginning to truly take shape as a resounding success despite a climb in the standings.
A large part of Cleveland’s bright future hinges on Tristian...
