Cleveland Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov is getting closer to a return and could be back in the lineup Friday night against the Charlotte Hornets. Mozgov, who is officially listed as questionable, will participate in parts of Friday morning’s shootaround in hopes of coming back just seven days after an MRI confirmed the strained right shoulder. The Cavs, however, will continue to be cautious, just as they have with every other ailment this season. “Possibly,” Cavs head coach David Blatt said about Mozgov playing against Charlotte. “We’re going to see how he’s feeling this morning. See if we can get him out there a little bit.”
He no longer has any discernible weaknesses, though he is still searching for consistency. Mozgov has always had good hands, good speed, impressive athleticism and great timing. For him, now, it’s just a matter of repetition and opportunity—not the dollars. “[My free agency] doesn’t change anything for me right now because whatever I do, I gotta do with my heart,” Mozgov said. “What I did last season, I gotta do this season, too. If you want to be a good player, there should be nothing changing. You’ve just gotta work hard.”
