Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports that the Cavaliers may be without scrappy guard Matthew Dellavedova tonight for game three of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Raptors due to a left ankle injury.
Dellavedova will officially be a ‘game-time decision’ after he stepped on another player’s foot and turned his left ankle during the Cavs win in game two on Thursday.
“It’s just how he feels tonight and what the medical staff says,” Lue said. “I am not a medical guy. If they say he can go he will go and if not then someone else will have to step up and be ready to play.”
If Delly can’t go, the backup point guard spot will go to Mo Williams, who did get some playing time during the rout of the Raptors on Thursday.
Dellavedova is averaging 5.6 points in the postseason, with 35 assists through 10 games.
