Darius Garland is emerging for the Cavaliers
Author: James Rapien
CLEVELAND, OH – The Cavaliers knew it could take some time for Darius Garland to get into a rhythm this season.
The No. 5 overall pick only played five collegiate games, didn’t play in the summer league and missed most of training camp due to injury.
The Cavs drafted him to be a building block for the future. They felt like an elite shooter and playmaker like Garland was too good to pass up, despite concerns about his height (6’1”) and injury history.

Last month, a source told SI.com that Cavaliers rookie Dylan Windler is likely to make his NBA debut in early or mid-December. Or at least, that was "the hope."
Well, guess what?
Early December is here and Windler went through a full practice on its very first day. It marked his first full practice since suffering a stress-related left leg injury. (Though he has been doing some 3-on-3 work lately.)
"Yes, even Dylan practiced,” Cavs coach John Beilein said. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
