At one point or the other, most teams have to deal with the effects of a rigorous schedule in the form of multiple players missing games due to injuries.
For most teams, the slump arrives around the NBA All-Star break, but the Cleveland Cavaliers are dealing with it at the beginning of the season.
The Cavaliers’ roster has been sliced thin due to multiple injuries.
Now, ahead of the organization’s Tuesday night matchup against the New York Knicks, Caris LeVert has been added to the list, as revealed via Chris Fedor on Twitter.
#Cavs Caris LeVert (hamstring) has also been added to tonight’s injury report. He is QUESTIONABLE. LeVert was moving gingerly following Saturday’s game against Indiana. He said he was a little sore.

As per Fedor’s report, LeVert is currently questionable to play in the game due to a hamstring injury.
The veteran guard apparently suffered the injury after Saturday’s game against the Indiana Pacers.
LeVert’s numbers have been one of the few positives about the Cavaliers’ season so far.
The 29-year-old has averaged 19.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game for the Cavaliers.
But with LeVert’s availability for the next game in doubt, the Cavaliers may end up losing their third consecutive game.
It’s certainly a poor start for the team that clinched the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference last season.
However, the only silver lining for the Cavaliers is the fact that they have hopes of getting better later in the season.
The Cavs can begin their comeback once Jarrett Allen, Darius Garland, and Caris LeVert are declared 100% fit to play games.
Until then, buckle up Cavs fans, things may remain tricky over the next few weeks.
