Isaac Okoro News
Cleveland Cavaliers forward Isaac Okoro (elbow) will make his return to the court on Friday against the San Antonio Spurs. He was expected to miss 2-3 weeks of action, but easily beat that timetable. The Cavs could certainly use his help with the roster being banged up with injuries. However, the Cavs are likely to limit Okoro during his first game back. He should get plenty of minutes once he's back to full speed. However, this is likely a wait-and-see type of situation in most fantasy formats.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward Isaac Okoro (elbow) is expected to miss the next two to three weeks of action. He was diagnosed with a left elbow sprain, which is a tough blow to the Cavs roster, a team that is already without Ricky Rubio (knee) and Collin Sexton (knee) for the rest of the season. Also, Cedi Osman is still in COVID-19 quarantine, so it's uncertain when he'll get back on the court. Okoro wasn't a great option for the Cavs, but he was playing heavy minutes in the rotation. Now, Dean Wade will be asked to step into a bigger role on the team. Wade might have some low-end streaming appeal until Osman is back.
Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard/small forward Isaac Okoro has been cleared to play in Tuesday's contest against New Orleans, returning to action after a stint in the league's health and safety protocols that cost him three contests. Okoro enjoyed his most consistent offensive stretch just prior to landing in the protocols, averaging 18.5 PPG on 70 percent shooting across his last four games. His return comes at a much-needed juncture for Cleveland, who will be without Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen for the time being due to the protocols. Okoro's offensive contributions have fluctuated significantly throughout his early NBA career, but he is worth a short-term flier in most season-long formats due to the Cavs' limited depth.
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Isaac Okoro is questionable for Tuesday's meeting with New Orleans. The former No. 5 overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft has missed his previous three games because of health and safety protocols surrounding COVID-19. He was cleared a few days ago, but he will need to ramp up his conditioning level before getting back on the floor. Nonetheless, it appears that there is a good chance he will be in the lineup, although he could be limited for the next game or so. However, if he remains out, Darius Garland and Ricky Rubio should continue to hold things down in the backcourt.
