On Monday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers will play against the Sacramento Kings, one of the best teams in the NBA.
Unfortunately, they might be without one of their biggest stars.
Evan Dammarell reports that Jarrett Allen is “questionable” before the game, but he was spotted “getting in extra work” with Caris LeVert and Dean Wade during Monday’s shoot around.

Allen has been a downright vital part of the team’s success this season, averaging 15.5 points and 10.7 rebounds.
For the most part, Allen has been healthy for the season and has started in all 42 games he’s played in.
But a new ankle injury that Allen recently received has the former All-Star listed as “day-to-day.”
Speaking of the All-Star Game, Allen recently missed out on the chance to be in the annual event this year, which was surprising and disappointing to Cavaliers fans.
Allen has been doing incredible work all season long and has been a steadfast part of the team’s offense and defense.
They have needed as much stability as possible, especially because both Evan Mobley and Darius Garland have been hurt for weeks.
Without Mobley in the front court, Allen has had to step up even more and remain even more consistent.
He showed that he was up for the challenge and helped the team earn a string of impressive wins.
If Allen sits out on Monday night, it’ll be Mobley’s chance to rise to the occasion and show what he is capable of.
The Cavaliers have been winning a lot lately and are hoping to secure their sixth straight victory against the Kings.
Can they do it without Allen?
