Dante Exum News
Brooklyn Nets forward Rodions Kurucs and Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dante Exum (calf) have been traded to the Houston Rockets in a massive blockbuster deal. Most importantly, the Rockets received Victor Oladipo and seven first-round picks in exchange for James Harden. They also snag two depth players in Kurucs and Exum. The Rockets have plenty of forwards already and Exum doesn't stay on the court long enough to be relevant in fantasy leagues. Both players can remain on the waiver wire.
Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Dante Exum (calf) will miss at least the next one or two months due to the calf strain that he sustained during Monday's loss to Orlando. The injury is the latest setback in Exum's career, which has been scuttled by ailments seemingly since he entered the league as the No. 5 overall pick in 2014. Having started three of his first six games this season, Exum's return to a starting gig boded well for his fantasy upside as the year wore on. Without Exum, the Cavaliers will be extremely short-handed in the short-term, while Isaac Okoro is likely to see an even larger role on the wing.
Cleveland Cavaliers point guards Darius Garland (shoulder) and Dante Exum (calf) have been ruled out for Wednesday's game versus Orlando. The absence of the duo paves the way for Collin Sexton to take on another considerable offensive workload, while handling the vast majority of ball-handling duties. Damyean Dotson is likely to remain among the starting five, thereby drawing some DFS appeal. Without Garland or Exum on the floor, the Cavs' rotations are likely going to trend toward multi-forward lineups. The next chance that either will have to return to action comes Thursday against the Grizzlies.
Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Dante Exum (leg) left Monday's game versus the Magic after just one minute played due to what has been deemed a calf strain and will not return. Exum has an extensive injury history, which when combined with the non-contact nature of what he sustained Monday, is not a positive sign in the short-term. He had already drawn his third start of the year, his most since 2016-17 as a member of the Jazz, although his role has changed since then. Still only 25 years old, the No. 5 overall pick in the '14 NBA Draft continues to be viewed with high upside, although the extent of his injury will likely decide when he can next take the floor.
