Jarrett Allen returns after missing five games

- by

Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star center Jarrett Allen is back. Sources tell cleveland.com that Allen, who has missed the last five games with a lower back contusion, will return to the lineup Tuesday night. Allen will be back in the starting lineup, hoping to slow down Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis. The four other starters — Darius Garland, Donovan Mitchell, Lamar Stevens and Evan Mobley — will remain the same, sources say.

Donovan Mitchell really started to heat up for the #Cavs to close out the second quarter here. He’s up to 14 points. Jarrett Allen has a game-high 22 and seven rebounds. LeBron leads the Lakers with 11 points. Cavs lead 57-49 at the half. – 8:27 PM

Jarrett Allen just missed his first shot of the game … guarded by Dennis Schroder. – 8:19 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Jarrett Allen is 10-of-10 from the field halfway through the second quarter and Anthony Davis is done for the night. Could see some bonkers numbers especially if the Lakers go to LeBron at center. – 8:16 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
No one on the #Cavs other than Jarrett Allen has made more than two field goals tonight. Allen has 19 points on 9-of-9, the rest of the Cavs have 19 points on 9-of-24 shooting. – 8:12 PM
Chris Vernon @ChrisVernonShow
I never saw Wilt but pretty sure it prob looked like Jarrett Allen vs Lakers tonight. – 8:07 PM
Bob Finnan @BobCavsinsider
Jarrett Allen 9-9 from field in his return to lineup. Cavs on top 35-30 – 8:04 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
#Cavs lead the Lakers 27-26 after the first quarter here at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Jarrett Allen has been awesome in his return to the floor. He’s got a game-high 14 points on a perfect 7-of-7 shooting. The rest of the Cavs are 6-of-17 shooting. – 7:58 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
End of Q1: Cavs 27, Lakers 26.
Obviously the biggest factor is what’s up with AD, who went back toward the locker room a few minutes ago. Jarrett Allen eating in his absence with 14 points on 7 for 7 shooting. – 7:58 PM

#Cavs Jarrett Allen unsurprisingly making a huge early impact tonight. He is such a difference-maker at both ends of the floor. He’s got 10 points and 2 boards. He also has the LeBron assignment on defense while Evan Mobley has been matched up with Anthony Davis. – 7:51 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
#Cavs Jarrett Allen is really dominating in the paint on the offensive end in his first game back. He has an early 10 points here in the first quarter. – 7:50 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
Really good first run for Jarrett Allen. He’s got eight points on a perfect 4-of-4 from the floor. Played the first seven minutes. Now, we’re getting Mobley vs. AD. This should be fun. – 7:47 PM
Bob Finnan @BobCavsinsider
Jarrett Allen, back after a 5-game absence, just got elbowed in the face by LeBron on a dunk attempt. – 7:38 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
Jarrett Allen just met LeBron at the rim and won, but was down for a minute and appeared to be in pain, holding his face. He’s up and the #Cavs will take a timeout. They lead 10-3. – 7:38 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
I’m told #Cavs Jarrett Allen is not on any minute restriction tonight in his first game since Nov. 25. However, the length of his runs will be monitored throughout. – 7:31 PM
Joe Vardon @joevardon

More on this storyline

Danny Cunningham: #Cavs big man Jarrett Allen is present here at shootaround and wearing a wine colored practice jersey that’s used to denote the starters. Allen is listed as questionable for tonight with a back injury. -via Twitter @RealDCunningham / December 6, 2022
The Cavaliers’ front office and coaching staff believed Mobley’s passing and ballhandling ability would mesh with Allen’s skills. They were certain the duo would thrive defensively, due to their size and ability to defend multiple positions. “When you start to think about long-term success and you start to think about the playoffs, how many times do you see big guys get played off the floor?” Bickerstaff says. “They can’t switch, they can’t guard pick-and-roll, so now they’ve got to go sit down and they can’t play. “We were extremely fortunate to look at those two guys, and they have the ability to do that.” -via ESPN / November 30, 2022
