The Cleveland Cavaliers are set to face off against the Sacramento Kings on Monday night and want all the help they can get.
Sadly, they will be without one of their star players.
On Sunday night, Chris Fedor reported that forward Isaac Okoro will sit out of Monday’s game against Sacramento due to knee soreness.
This will be Okoro’s fourth straight absence from the team and comes at a time when they are trying to put together a few wins in a row.

Okoro has played in six games so far this season, recording 9.5 points and 4.8 assists per night.
The knee soreness has kept him away from the team for days now and he has missed their battles against the Golden State Warriors twice and the Oklahoma City Thunder once.
During that time, the Cavaliers defeated the Warriors both times and lost to the Thunder.
They have yet to win two games in a row.
The Kings will likely be a very tough competitor, so Cleveland will definitely miss Okoro and what he brings to the team.
He has a career average of 8.2 points and 2.9 rebounds, which means he was having his best season yet until the injury sidelined him.
The Cavaliers have had a rocky start to the season and currently hold a 4-5 record.
After the Kings, they will square off against the Portland Trail Blazers, Detroit Pistons, and Denver Nuggets.
They have a chance to rack up a few important wins over the next several games, but those wins will be even more likely if Okoro is able to rest up, get healthy, and come back.
