The list of Cavaliers on the injury report is almost as lengthy as those who are healthy and available. But as the team provides updates on two who will be out, one player is able to return.

The Cavs entered this week already without Kevin Love (calf strain), Matthew Dellavedova (concussion), Kevin Porter Jr. (personal reasons), Dylan Windler (fractured left hand) and Isaac Okoro (sprained foot, health and safety protocols). Darius Garland then popped up on the injury report and Dante Exum went down Monday night in Orlando.

Exum received some tough news regarding his injury, but it was also, in a way, a relief compared to early fears when he first fell to the floor with a non-contact injury. An MRI confirmed that Exum sustained a strained calf, according to an update provided by the team, and is expected to miss approximately 6-8 weeks of basketball activities.
