Rookie sensation Evan Mobley is set to return to the slumping Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night; barring any injury setbacks, per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.
Mobley suffered a sprained elbow in a matchup against the Boston Celtics on November 15th.
The Cavs have gone 0-5 in Mobley’s absence.
Mobley is averaging 14.6 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks a game.
The Cavs initially feared that Mobley would miss 2-4 weeks with the elbow injury but things things are progressing faster than expected.
There’s no doubt about it: the Cavs need Mobley on the court; even with their abundance of big-men.
Cleveland will have a great chance to get back on track on Saturday in their 8PM EST game against the 4-15 Orlando Magic.
