Cleveland Cavaliers guard Darius Garland could miss up to one week with a right shoulder sprain, the team announced. An MRI on Tuesday confirmed the injury after he was held out of Monday night’s game against the Orlando Magic. The team also confirmed that he’ll be reevaluated daily after first experiencing discomfort following Cleveland’s 96-91 win against Atlanta on Saturday.
Chris Fedor: #Cavs Darius Garland is expected to play in tomorrow’s scrimmage. But John Beilein hasn’t decided who his starting group will be yet. Beilein said nothing should be inferred based on that tomorrow night.
Rick Noland: Darius Garland, who has had some soreness in his foot, did more things at the team’s morning practice but wasn’t a total participant. Beilein said the No. 5 pick is “almost there.”
Darius Garland didn’t participate in the Cavaliers’ first training camp practice Tuesday morning because of soreness in his right foot. The Cavs are scheduled to take the court for a second session later this evening, which will be mostly on-court shooting. That part wasn’t a problem for Garland, who was able to hoist both standstill and off-the-dribble jumpers, going all around the floor, inside and outside the arc, following Monday’s practice.
According to those familiar with the workouts, Garland looked great, wowing the staff with his shooting prowess, floor game and playmaking. Beilein said Garland — and others — got a “head start on everybody.”
Marla Ridenour: #Cavs coach John Beilein said Darius Garland (foot) and Larry Nance Jr. (didn’t feel well) did not practice today. Said Garland’s foot issue minor. Beilein upbeat about how first session went.
Chris Fedor: Sources: #Cavs Darius Garland is unlikely to play summer league. He’s healthy, but the organization doesn’t want to push it.
Andy Katz: Darius Garland told us he left @VandyMBB once he got hurt for business reasons. He said he hopes his injury won’t hurt his status in the lottery. He said he’s good to go. He said what he missed most this season was being with his peers. @NBATV @ALaForce

Kyle Neubeck: Stephen A. Smith just said on NBA Countdown that New York is the one place Dame Lillard would angle for if he eventually wanted/asked out. Adds, “There are people in his camp who would like him to give Philadelphia stronger consideration.”
“It definitely caught me off guard. I actually learned about it in the parking lot of the Sports Academy in Frisco, TX. I was leaving a session and my phone was going crazy. I’d seen that DeMar DeRozan had gotten traded to Chicago and I was like, ‘Why is my phone going crazy for this?’ Then, I dive a little deeper into it and I see that the trade included me, Al-Farouq Aminu, some picks and stuff like that. “It definitely caught me off guard for the simple fact that I had just talked to my agent and my agent had just talked to everybody in Chicago, and we were being told that I was coming back. And they guaranteed my salary the day before or two days before or something like that and then used it as trade bait. It is what it is; it happens and it’s part of the business. But the only thing I wish is that I had gotten the heads up before I found out from social [media].

Rich Hoffman: Joel Embiid: “There wasn’t anybody that was not likable in the past but it makes it easier when you have guys like that that care about winning. When we lose, you look at the Boston game, we were all pissed off. We all played so bad and we were still right there.” pic.twitter.com/i5VRkgXr7B
Rich Hoffman: Joel Embiid: “I’m still pissed off about what happened last year. [To win] means a lot to me… In our situation, we got about $400 million worth of contracts not playing. Any time you can get a win undermanned, missing 2 or 3 players, it’s great confidence for our guys.” pic.twitter.com/LmuraqwMvc
