Lamar Stevens News
Cleveland Cavaliers power forward/center Evan Mobley (knee) and small forward Lamar Stevens (knee) have been deemed questionable to play in Friday's game vs. Toronto. Mobley has not missed a game this season en route to averaging 14.8 points and 9.1 boards as a staple of the Cavs' starting five, while Stevens has missed the past three contests due to a sore right knee. While Isaac Okoro has slid back into the starting five, the second unit trio of Kevin Love, Caris LeVert and Cedi Osman have all picked up the slack on the wing/in the frontcourt. While Stevens has reprised mostly a starting role in 2022-23, his value lies primarily on his on-ball defense, making him a difficult fantasy option, even if he does ultimately suit up Friday.
Cleveland Cavaliers guard/forward Lamar Stevens (knee) is regarded as doubtful for Wednesday's game against Milwaukee. He has an issue with his right knee and could be forced to miss a third consecutive game. Isaac Okoro should remain in the starting unit if Stevens can't return. The 21-year-old has had a couple of strong outings, but Okoro typically doesn't make a big impact in games and it's safe to leave him on the waiver wire. In six total starts this season, Okoro has averaged only 6.2 points and 3.3 rebounds with 0.8 assists and 0.8 steals in 26.5 minutes.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward Lamar Stevens will start on Friday versus Cleveland, replacing Caris LeVert. With the Cavs looking to end its five-game skid, head coach J.B. Bickerstaff will turn to Stevens to bolster things on the defensive end. The 25-year-old has averaged 12.5 points in two starts in 2022-23. However, with Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland on the floor, Stevens isn't expected to be featured offensively, making him a risky fantasy option across the board.
Cleveland Cavaliers small forward Lamar Stevens (ankle) has been ruled out for the rest of Friday's contest against the Pistons due to a sprained right ankle. Stevens' injury came shortly after he entered the contest, as he did not log a contribution to the stat sheet before exiting. Stevens has been lightly utilized off the bench this season, averaging just 2.1 points and 1.9 boards per game coming into the night. Cedi Osman and Dylan Windler are two candidates to see elevated run while Stevens is unavailable. His next chance to return comes Saturday vs. Boston.
