Fresh off of their gut-wrenching loss to the Indiana Pacers, the Cleveland Cavaliers may have an additional scorer at their disposal with rookie shooting guard Dion Waiters being listed as probable for their contest against the Detroit Pistons.
Waiters injured his right knee on March 18 in a game against—coincidentally—the Indiana Pacers and has missed the last 10 games after being diagnosed with loose cartilage. He was originally scheduled to miss roughly one week’s time, but the condition did not improve until recently. It had been feared that the rookie could require surgery to clean up the issue, but it appears that such an operation was avoided.
On the season, Waiters has averaged 14.7 points (41.1 percent shooting), 2.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists. The Cavaliers were 2-8 in Waiters’ absence.
