Cleveland Cavaliers forward Dean Wade (ankle) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's opener in Memphis. Wade is more realistically day-to-day as he continues to work his way back from a sprained right ankle. However, he isn't expected to have a significant role in the rotation this season, at least right now, so there likely aren't too many fantasy managers whom the latest update will impact.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward Dean Wade compiled a season-high 21 points along with six rebounds, two assists, and three steals in 32 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Pelicans. Wade is only averaging 5.1 points per game this season but has now posted at least 12 points in the past three games, which is a nice little stretch of production. This production is likely the result of injuries on the team thinning the depth chart. Overall, the forward is still very unproven for fantasy and shouldn't be considered at all until he shows he can keep these numbers up over a longer period.
Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Dean Wade is back among the starting five for Wednesday's game against Houston, which marks his second consecutive start. Wade earned the spot Tuesday with Taurean Prince (ankle) unavailable, but even with Prince back in the mix versus the Rockets, Wade will stick with the starting group. Despite his presence as a starter, Wade took just three shots in 21 minutes Tuesday, which makes him a difficult DFS asset to rely upon. Until either his minutes or scoring output shows significant signs of an increase, he can remain on the waiver wire in all season-long formats.
Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Dean Wade will make the first start of his NBA career during Tuesday's matchup with the Hawks. Wade has averaged just 8.3 minutes across his first 23 games this season, taking the place of Taurean Prince (ankle) in the starting lineup. Having not yet scored in double figures across his first 35 career appearances, Wade will be a tremendously risky DFS asset in spite of his immensely low price tag. Cedi Osman and Isaac Okoro can also be expected to see sizable workloads as Cleveland battles a depleted frontcourt.
