Rick Noland: Love, Korver, Hill, Tristan out for Cavs to rest. Nwaba out with groin strain
One day after earning head coach Tyronn Lue’s praise, David Nwaba will be held out of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ second preseason game against the Boston Celtics. Nwaba, who Lue declared part of his rotation despite a glut of guards, is nursing a groin injury. He tweaked it “a little bit” in practice recently. The 25-year-old free agent addition will join George Hill, Kyle Korver, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson on the sidelines Saturday night.
Shams Charania: Sources: The Chicago Bulls have rescinded the qualifying offer on guard David Nwaba, making him an unrestricted free agent.
“It was probably one of my worst sprains,” Nwaba said. “I didn’t think I’d be out for this long. I was hoping to be out a week at most. For me to be out four weeks, it’s been an issue. I’m going to bounce back.”

Karl-Anthony Towns remains in concussion protocol and will not play for Minnesota against Milwaukee, a night after missing a game for the first time in his career. The All-Star forward was in a car accident Thursday and didn’t play Friday in New York, ending his streak of 303 consecutive games started. He traveled with the Timberwolves for the game in Milwaukee on Saturday, rather than return to Minnesota, but hadn’t been cleared to play again.
Being unable to play has troubled Towns, coach Ryan Saunders said. “People asked me if he cared about his [consecutive games] streak,” Saunders said. “He hasn’t and didn’t mention one thing along those lines. It was all about being there for his teammates and contributing. He even had somebody run out and make sure he could get a sport coat so he was dressed properly on the bench so he could be there with his teammates. That says a lot about Karl.”
Jason Anderson: Worth noting: Joerger said his exchange with Hield “wasn’t about shot selection,” but it WAS about Hield not running the play he called. Kind of a distinction without a difference. Anyway, the words you all probably want to hear Joerger say about Buddy: “I love him to death.”
