The Cleveland Cavaliers have just returned from playing in Paris, France, and are about to jump back into action with Wednesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The team is missing a few of its biggest stars but is another player going to sit out of the highly-anticipated match?
According to Chris Fedor, Caris LeVert was spotted coming out of the training room Wednesday morning with a wrap around his right wrist.
He was then seen “testing his ability to shoot with various assistants.”

Losing LeVert for the game against the Bucks would obviously be bad news for the Cavaliers.
The veteran player is averaging 16.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 4.1 assists on 42.8% from the field.
If he does sit out, this wouldn’t be the first time this season that Cleveland has fought without LeVert.
He has missed several games throughout the season but has been back since the end of December.
The good news is that the Cavaliers will have backup ready to play if LeVert is indeed injured.
Players like Sam Merrill, Georges Niang, and Craig Porter could pick up the slack without LeVert.
The Cavaliers played against the Bucks earlier this season and ended up losing that game.
They are hoping to even the score on Wednesday night but that’ll be a tough task with LeVert joining the injury list alongside Darius Garland and Evan Mobley.
The Cavaliers have been sailing lately, winning their last five games despite their multiple hurt stars.
LeVert has a few hours to test his wrist and see what he is capable of.
The Cavaliers can get by without him like they have before, but it won’t be easy.
