4/4/2014 10:34:00 AM
Description: Cleveland small forward Luol Deng, who left Wednesday's game early due to a strained back, is expected to play on Friday.

Insight: Deng's sprained ankle has come at a terrible time for Cleveland, who is also playing without Kyrie Irving (biceps) and C.J. Miles (ankle).

3/18/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward Luol Deng (ankle) will miss Tuesday's game against the Heat, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
Insight: With Kyrie Irving (biceps), Deng, C.J. Miles (ankle) and Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) either out or questionable to play, the Cavaliers are going to need Dion Waiters, Jarrett Jack and Alonzo Gee to handle a large chunk of minutes.
