Things aren’t going as well as they could be for the Cleveland Cavaliers right now.
Yes, the team is currently the fourth team in the Eastern Conference, which is quite admirable and impressive.
There is also no doubt that they are one of the most exciting and promising young squads in the NBA.
Still, the Cavs are right now in a rough patch, as they have lost four games in a row.
Their latest loss came at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday, despite Darius Garland‘s massive performance.
Jarrett Allen is out for the #Cavs tomorrow against the Bucks which makes sense since he didn't practice. Allen is listed out with a non-COVID illness.
Donovan Mitchell is a game-time decision. Dean Wade is doubtful.

When the team takes to the floor again on Wednesday, they will be missing a key asset: Jarrett Allen.
The center will sit out of the game because of a non-COVID illness.
This isn’t good news for the team, not only because Allen is such an important part of the roster.
But he is just one of a few players who could be sitting out.
Cavs Caught Off Guard
That is not the sort of lineup the team wants when going against the Milwaukee Bucks, one of the best teams in the league.
It’s also doubly hard because Allen is one of the team’s biggest players and the Bucks are known for their intimidating size.
So, the Cavs are looking like the underdogs for Wednesday as they try to snap a four-game losing streak.
But no one should count them out – again and again, this team has shown they have more spirit and energy, and drive than nearly any other in the league.
Sure, they might not have some of their best players on Wednesday but that doesn’t mean they can’t pull out a win.
