Top Max Strus News

  • Cavaliers' Max Strus: Season-high nine dimes vs. Clippers

    Strus closed with 20 points (5-11 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, nine assists and one steal in 39 minutes during Sunday's 120-118 loss to the Clippers.

    Strus has recorded six-plus assists in three of his last four games, and he was one assist shy of matching his career high that he set in Jan. of 2023 with the Heat. His 20 points Sunday was the first time since Feb. 27 against the Mavericks that he's reached that mark as he drained four of the Cavaliers' 11 three-point makes. Since returning from an 11-game absence due to a right knee strain, Strus is averaging 13.1 points on 49.2 percent shooting, including 40.5 percent from three, 4.7 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.3 steals over 31.1 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Max Strus: Drills five triples in return

    Strus (knee) scored 19 points (7-13 FG, 5-10 3Pt) and added four rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes Wednesday in the Cavaliers' 118-111 loss to the Hornets.

    Making his return from a 12-game absence due to a right knee strain, Strus reclaimed his spot in the starting five while Caris LeVert headed to the bench. Strus didn't take long to get acclimated in his return, as he hit a triple in the game's opening minute and nailed four more over the course of the night to finish second to Jarrett Allen (24 points) among all Cavaliers players in scoring. The 27-year-old should hold down a starting role on the wing moving forward, but he'll likely lose out on some shot attempts if Donovan Mitchell (nose) is able to rejoin the Cleveland backcourt Friday versus the 76ers.

  • Cavaliers' Max Strus: Will start Wednesday

    Strus (knee) is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Serena Winters of Bally Sports Cleveland reports.

    Strus is set to return from a 12-game absence, so he may have his minutes monitored in his first game back. He'll be joined in the first unit by Darius Garland, Isaac Okoro, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen, while Caris LeVert will head to the bench.

  • Cavaliers' Max Strus: Upgraded to questionable

    Strus (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against Charlotte.

    Strus ascending to questionable gives him a chance to return from a 12-game absence due to a right knee sprain. Sam Merrill has been an admirable fill-in of late, delivering 10.3 points and knocking down 41.2 percent of 7.3 threes per game across his last seven contests, but Strus would be valued reinforcements while Donovan Mitchell (nose) is amid an extended absence.
