Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters (back) is being listed as probable for Friday's game versus Boston.
Insight: He went through a full practice on Thursday, and return to his sixth-man role on Friday night.
 
11/10/2014 5:45:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters will not play against the Pelicans on Monday.
Insight: Shawn Marion will get additional minutes in the starting lineup. Rookie Joe Harris and veteran Mike Miller will see a bump in playing times as well.
 
10/22/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters will have little fantasy value this season.
Insight: Waiters should play just as many minutes as he did last season, but with the new 'big three' in Cleveland, Waiters is the odd man out. He should be a viable contributor for the Cavaliers, but not likely to make a fantasy impact.
 
Hot4/11/2014 11:00:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers SG Dion Waiters had 23 points, four assists and five steals Friday at Milwaukee.
Insight: It has been the Dion Waiters show since Kyrie Irving's injury opened up a starting spot for him. Waiters has remained in the starting five next to Irving since he returned and averaged 21.9 ppg over his last 13 games.
 
Hot4/2/2014 10:08:00 PM
Description: Kyrie Irving's return to the lineup from an eight-game absence Wednesday didn't slow down Dion Waiters.
Insight: Waiters had 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting (3-3 3PT) and three assists in 34 minutes after averaging 39.9 minutes, 22 points and 5.1 assists per game with Irving out of the lineup with a biceps strain. Jarrett Jack moved to the bench Wednesday but the Cavs still found 30 minutes for him.
 
Hot3/25/2014 9:34:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters stayed hot with 24 points on 10-of-19 shooting Tuesday in a win against Toronto.
Insight: He also had seven assists and two blocked shots. Waiters has averaged 23.8 ppg, 6.4 apg and 3.6 rpg since Kyrie Irving went down with a biceps injury earlier this month.
 
Hot3/22/2014 10:25:00 PM
Description: Cleveland shooting guard Dion Waiters had 26 points, eight assists and four rebounds in 40 minutes Saturday against the Rockets.
Insight: With Kyrie Irving out, Waiters is getting a chance to flex his muscles as the team's top ballhandler. He has averaged 17.9 points and 4.0 assists his last 14 games, including 24.3 ppg and 7.7 apg as the starter the last three.
 
3/20/2014 10:38:00 PM
Description: Cleveland shooting guard Dion Waiters scored a team-high 30 points in Thursday's loss to OKC.
Insight: That's a season-high for Waiters and only three points off his career-high. Waiters, who alternates between starting and coming off the bench, drew the start on Thursday. In 11 starts, he's averaging 15.2 ppg compared to 14.7 ppg in 46 games as a reserve. We'll see what head coach Mike Brown decides to do with him Saturday against Houston.
 
3/20/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters appeared to injure his right hip late in Tuesday's game and is questionable for Thursday's game against Oklahoma City.
Insight: Waiters had 17 points, a career-high 11 assists and four rebounds in 41 minutes Tuesday against the Heat, however, he injured his right hip to go along with an already sore knee and back. If he can play he could see big minutes with all the injuries to Cleveland's lineup.
 
Hot3/18/2014 10:48:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters had 17 points, a career-high 11 assists and four rebounds in 41 minutes Tuesday against the Heat. However, he appeared to injure his right hip when he was sandwiched between LeBron James and Udonis Haslem late in the fourth.
Insight: Kyrie Irving will miss two weeks with a biceps injury, allowing Waiters to move into the starting lineup and share ballhandling duties with Jarrett Jack. Waiters attempted 19 field goals Tuesday and has averaged 15.9 ppg over his last seven contests. His previous career high for assists in a game was eight, which he bested by three. The Cavs can ill afford to see him join Irving on the injury list.
 
Hot3/18/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters has been strong offensively over the past six games and with Kyrie Irving sidelined for the next two weeks Waiters should continue to produce.
Insight: Waiters played 30-plus minutes in each of the last two games and he and Jarrett Jack should play huge minutes with Irving and C.J. Miles both in street clothes.
 
Hot3/8/2014 11:48:00 AM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters (hyperextended left knee) has returned with a vengance, averaging 21.5 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 2.0 apg over his last two contests.
Insight: Waiters is taking advantage of C.J. Miles' injury and putting it to good use. He should continue to get around 25 mpg.
 
Hot3/4/2014 9:39:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters (hyperextended left knee) returned from a seven-game absence and had 24 points, three assists and two threes in 23 minutes Tuesday against the Spurs.
Insight: Waiters averaged 16.8 ppg on 47.9 percent shooting in the five games before his injury, and he picked up where he left off Tuesday in his return.
 
3/4/2014 7:02:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters (hyperextended left knee) will be back in action Tuesday against the Spurs.
Insight: Waiters had missed the last seven games. He averaged 16.8 ppg on 47.9 percent shooting in the five games before his injury.
 
3/4/2014 1:09:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters (hyperextended left knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against San Antonio.
Insight: Waiters missed the last seven games, but he expected to be ready. He averaged 16.8 ppg on 47.9 percent shooting in the five games before the injury, but that was pre-Luol Deng and before Jarrett Jack allowed Kyrie Irving to play some SG.
 
3/3/2014 5:36:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters (knee) expects to be back in the lineup Tuesday, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: Waiters missed the last seven games with a hyperextended knee. He averaged 16.8 ppg on 47.9 percent shooting in the five games before the injury, but it probably won't carry over after the long layoff.
 
2/28/2014 1:26:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters (knee) will miss another game on Friday - his sixth consecutive.
Insight: Waiters did some shooting Monday, but with his knee wrapped up and there is no timetable for his return. Jarrett Jack is getting 30 minutes of PT and worthy of fantasy consideration.
 
2/25/2014 6:26:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters (knee) is unlikely to travel to Oklahoma City for Wednesday's game, according to beat writer Rick Noland.
Insight: Waiters did some shooting Monday, but with his knee wrapped up and there is no timetable for his return. He'll definitely miss Tuesday's game and most likely won't play Wednesday, making it at least five games he'll have missed with a hyperextended knee.
 
2/25/2014 11:16:00 AM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters is expected to miss Tuesday's game against Toronto due to a hyperextended left knee.
Insight: Waiters did some shooting Monday, but with his knee wrapped up and there is no timetable for his return. At this point we are expecting him to miss just a couple more games.
 
2/22/2014 5:07:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters (knee) will miss his third straight game Sunday, according to beat writer Bob Finnan.
Insight: The Cavs will be without both C.J. Miles and Waiters again, leaving Jarrett Jack to get most of the shooting guard minutes. Jack played 41 minutes Friday night, but shot 3-of-9 and had nine points. Jack has had a subpar season and isn't worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues.
