OCT 30 2:20 PM Donovan Mitchell and Jarrett Allen of the Cleveland Cavaliers participated in a complete practice session on Monday, as reported by Chris Fedor of Clevelanddotcom. However, Darius Garland, the point guard, was absent.
Mitchell had sat out the Cavs’ recent loss to the Indiana Pacers due to discomfort in his hamstring, while Garland had missed the last two games because of a hamstring problem.
Allen had yet to play in a regular season game after sitting out the entire preseason with an ankle injury.
Typically, players must undergo a full practice before receiving clearance from coaches and medical staff to return to action, but this isn’t an inflexible rule and is assessed on a case-by-case basis.
It seems that Mitchell is on track to return, and Allen is poised to make his debut as the Cavaliers prepare for a back-to-back matchup against the New York Knicks.
The first game tips off on Tuesday in Cleveland, with a rematch scheduled for Wednesday in New York. As for Garland’s status, it remains uncertain at this time.
