AKRON, Ohio — While the Cavaliers can’t seem to catch a break (but they sure have caught some strains and sprains), the Knicks are apparently fully healthy.
We know this because the Knicks have no one listed on their injury report.
As we relayed here, the Cavs (1-2) will be missing starting point guard Darius Garland (hamstring) and Jarrett Allen (ankle). They could also be without Donovan Mitchell (hamstring), who’s listed as questionable.
All three starters were out Saturday against the Pacers and it didn’t go so well. Cleveland has yet to win at home.
After Tuesday’s matchup, the Cavs and Knicks (1-2) will each hop on their own plane and travel to New York to play again on Wednesday.
Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff said he’d rather the Cavs be missing players now than at the end of the season, and you can’t blame him for that.
But for the fans, it’s tough to see their favorite team go without some of its biggest guns. Especially when you’re getting ready to face the team that ended your 2022-23 season in the playoffs.
