It has been more than a month since we have seen Evan Mobley play for the Cleveland Cavaliers but he is certainly headed toward a return.
And based on a new video shared by Chris Fedor on Twitter, it seems like Mobley’s re-entry to the NBA could be soon.
Fedor’s video shows Mobley on the court during the team’s shootaround, putting up shots with other Cavaliers players and staff.
The video also shows that Mobley is wearing a protective sleeve on his left knee, which means he still has a way to go before he’s ready to play again.
Still, it is clear that progress has been made.

When Mobley was first taken out of the game because of his injury, the team said he was projected to be back in about six to eight weeks.
This video confirms that his rehabilitation is on track and that he should be back soon.
Mobley hasn’t suffered any setbacks on his road to recovery after surgery and has said that he feels his knee has improved.
Still, the team hasn’t given him an official return date yet.
If he continues to get healthy and nothing gets in the way, Mobley will likely be back with the team at the start of next month.
The Cavaliers have been doing very well even without Mobley’s assistance and have won six games in a row.
The fourth seed in the East, the Cavaliers have been able to find chemistry and power despite losing Mobley and Darius Garland.
Where will they be in the standings when Mobley finally comes back?
