  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Muted effort again Thursday

    Wade recorded five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal across 17 minutes during Thursday's 128-113 victory over Memphis.

    Wade played just 17 minutes in the win, coming on the heels of a four-game stretch in which he played at least 21 minutes in each game. Despite earning a regular spot in the rotation, Wade is not a player to look at in fantasy, even in slightly deeper formats. He has scored double digits on only four occasions this season and averages only 1.1 combined steals and blocks.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Does little in light minutes

    Wade (shoulder) finished with zero points, one rebound and one block in 10 minutes during Saturday's 114-102 win over the Bucks.

    Suiting up for the first time since Dec. 2 after missing more than a month and a half with a sprained shoulder, Wade was on a tight minutes restriction in his return to action. Prior to getting hurt, Wade had started in his last five appearances and averaged 27.8 minutes per contest, but he may struggle to regain that level of playing time now that he's healthy again. Isaac Okoro has stepped up his production of late and may have secured a role as the Cavaliers' starting small forward, while Cedi Osman has provided a nice scoring punch off the bench in both of the past two games to make a push for consistent minutes.

  • Cavaliers' Dean Wade: Progressing, but not ready to play

    Cavaliers head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Tuesday that Wade (shoulder) is progressing, but the forward hasn't yet been cleared to resume taking part in 5-on-5 work during practice, Evan Dammarell of FearTheSword.com reports.

    Wade hasn't played since Dec. 2 due to a left shoulder sprain and recently suffered a minor setback in his recovery, but he appears to have resumed at least some on-court work.

His continued absence has opened up more playing time at forward for Isaac Okoro, who has settled into a starting role alongside guards Darius Garland and Donovan Mitchell (groin).
