In­jury-rid­dled Cava­liers will be with­out Os­man

The Tribune (SLO) - - Sports -

Cleve­land, which al­ready has the worst record in the NBA at 1-10, will be with­out yet an­other starter Satur­day night in Chicago af­ter for­ward Cedi Os­man was ruled out with back spasms.

He’s the lat­est Cavs player to join an in­jury list that in­cludes All-Star for­ward Kevin Love, point guard George Hill and Sam Dekker, who be­gan the sea­son as a re­serve but moved into the start­ing lineup be­cause of all the in­juries.

Throw in a coach­ing change, some off-court drama and this Cleve­land sea­son is sink­ing fast.

Os­man was forced to leave Wed­nes­day’s loss to Ok­la­homa City in the first quar­ter, and the Cavs were hop­ing rest would al­low him to face the Bulls. How­ever, coach Larry Drew said Os­man will sit out against the Bulls “and we’ll see how he is af­ter the game to­mor­row.”

Nuggets: For­ward Will Bar­ton is start­ing to take a few shots as he re­cov­ers from surgery to fix core and hip mus­cle in­juries.
