Cavs potential starting lineup changes due to Tristan Thompson injury

TAKING ADVANTAGE — Cleveland Cavaliers' Larry Nance Jr. drives against Detroit Pistons' James Ennis in the first half on Monday in Cleveland

The Cavs big man played all 82 games in four straight seasons from 2012-16 and totaled 447 consecutive games before a thumb injury kept him out for a few games a year ago.

Thompson, who recently learned the sex of his baby with Khloe Kardashian, suffered a sprained right ankle in Saturday night's 126-117 loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Q2 Weather: Falling snow stops, but blowing snow is still trouble
Tuesday night: Rain likely before midnight, then rain and snow likely between midnight and 1 a.m., then snow likely. The chance of precipitation is 60 percent with snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

You could chalk up their 4-4 record since the trade deadline to getting familiar with each other, and that could very well be the case.

Thompson got hurt in the first half of Saturday's loss to Denver.

Diablo Coming For Nintendo Switch? Blizzard's Recent Tweet Has Fans Freaking Out
But saying "we have nothing to announce" rather than outright dismissing the rumor leaves the door open, if even just slightly. Blizzard , however, denied any connection between the tweet and the launch of the last Diablo game on the hybrid console.

Cavaliers starting guard J.R. Smith was suspended one game by the team for throwing a bowl of soup at assistant coach Damon Jones. The Cavaliers aren't the most reliable home team in terms of betting trends, but the home team has covered in eight of the last nine meetings while the Pistons have been bad on the road no matter who they play. He continued to play, but experienced swelling of his right ankle overnight.

It hasn't been the same story this season, and Thompson has also failed to maintain his past production when on the court.

Anthony Joshua says Deontay Wilder 'an easier fight' than Joseph Parker
The British promoter was accused of "milking Anthony Joshua dry" last night in a verbal punch by the American. He's trying to collect as many checks as he can before it's too late. "I don't believe any man can beat me".

The Cleveland Cavaliers do need him in the post and his absence under the rim will surely be notable. Without Kevin Love (hand), they could start Larry Nance Jr.at center, and may even dust off Ante Zizic for some frontcourt minutes. However, for the next few games, the Cavaliers will have to play small because they just lost a key started. The 6-11 Croatian has made five appearances with the Charge this season, averaging 17.2 points and 9.4 rebounds in 24.4 minutes per game. LeBron James is doing everything he can, but the Cavs are still struggling. Tristan finished the game, and as mentioned, had a nice game overall.
