Os­man joins Cavs’ long in­jury list

The Oklahoman - - SPORTS - FROM WIRE RE­PORTS

The Cava­liers’ in­jury list con­tin­ues to grow with start­ing for­ward Cedi Os­man the lat­est ad­di­tion.

Os­man will miss Satur­day’s game at Chicago with back spasms that forced him to leave Wed­nes­day’s loss to Or­lando. The Cavs, who are 1-10 and miss­ing three other starters, had hoped rest would help Os­man, but he’s not ready to play.

Cleve­land is al­ready without All-Star for­ward Kevin Love, point guard Ge­orge Hill and backup for­ward Sam

Dekker, who moved into the start­ing lineup be­fore Love un­der­went foot surgery.

Coach Larry Drew said Fri­day that Os­man will miss one game and be re­assessed.

Drew, who re­cently signed a new con­tract af­ter tak­ing over fol­low­ing Ty­ronn Lue’s fir­ing, said the Cavs aren’t “snakebit.” He ac­knowl­edged the team needs its re­serves to step up while the team is short-handed.

Be­cause of the in­juries, Drew will shuf­fle his lineup again.

The Cavs signed guard An­drew Har­ri­son to a two-way con­tract.
