The Cavaliers are back on the court for the first time since the All-Star break tomorrow night as they will take on the Phoenix Suns at Quicken Loans Arena.
One player who is getting closer to playing but still likely won’t take the court is Tristan Thompson, who was on the practice floor today testing out his sore foot.
While it’s a step forward for Thompson, who has missed the last 13 games dating back to January 16th against Portland, coach Larry Drew says it’s a good bet you won’t see Thompson playing against the Suns.
#Cavs F Tristan Thompson participated in practice, but will “probably not” play tomorrow night. He’s missed last 13 with foot soreness.
