The Cleveland Cavaliers have been extremely unlucky in terms of their crucial members sustaining injuries to begin the 2023-24 NBA season.
While many have noted the absences of the likes of Darius Garland, Jarrett Allen, or Evan Mobley at one point or another in the season, a few other players have also missed games.
One of them is the 24th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, Ty Jerome.
Jerome played just two games this season before picking up an ankle injury that has kept him out of games ever since.
However, a video shared by Ethan Sands on Twitter showed that Jerome is finally working in the gym.

Although Jerome was still wearing his walking boot because of the injury, it’s a positive sign that he has started making shots.
Ty Jerome averaged just 2.0 points, 0.5 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game for the Cavaliers before getting injured.
But over the course of his career, he has proven that he can certainly play better than that if he’s provided with a good opportunity.
He averages 7.0 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game over the course of his entire NBA career.
The Cavaliers can use as much help as they can get at this point in the season.
The organization is currently the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference with a 15-12 record.
However, if the Cavs lose even a couple of back-to-back games, they will slide right out of a guaranteed playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
