Waiters Dealing With Ankle, Knee Injuries
Dion Waiters is still dealing with an ankle injury sustained during a workout before the draft.
Waiters averaged 12.3 points on 30 percent shooting during three Summer League games with the Cavaliers.
"I think his week was OK," Byron Scott said. "We all wish he would have played a little bit better and shot the ball better. But we knew he was coming off an ankle injury before he came here and [had] a couple little nagging injuries. He hurt the knee when he went up to dunk, so we held him out as a precautionary move.”
Waiters sat out Cleveland’s final two games as the team finished with a 3-2 record.
"We still feel pretty good about where he is,” Scott said. “He's still got a ways to go. We talked about his conditioning and losing a few pounds. But we feel he's going to be in great shape when training camp comes."
