CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters, the team's second leading scorer, will miss his third straight game because of tendinitis in his right wrist.
Waiters, who is averaging 14.9 points, hasn't played since Dec. 17 when he scored 25 in a loss to Portland. The second-year shooting guard, who also missed games Friday and Saturday, is wearing a splint on his wrist. Coach Mike Brown said before Monday's game against Detroit that rookies Matthew Dellavedova and Sergey Karasev would get more minutes until Waiters returns.
Waiters, taken with the No. 4 pick in the 2012 draft, has been the subject of trade rumors for most of the season. He has been coming off the bench for the last month since C.J. Miles was moved into the starting lineup.
