It’s unclear if we’ll see the Cleveland Cavaliers back in action in 2019-20. What is certain, though, is the squad misses the game dearly, as a recent video shows.

At this juncture, it’s uncertain if the 2019-20 NBA season will be back, at least to some capacity, down the road. I’m not sure if we’ll see the Cleveland Cavaliers in game action again.

Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported this week that in a conference call with the NBA Board of Governors, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said that he’s “targeting a season decision in 2-to-4 weeks,” and at this point, we’ll see.

In terms of other reported updates, you can view those here.

On Wednesday, ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne reported that the Miami Heat “were able to open their practice facility,” and playing off that, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday how the league hopes “22 of the 30 franchises” will have voluntary workout availability for players by Monday, so at least there’s seemingly that, even from a social distancing and individual stand point.

When on the topic of individual workouts, the Cavaliers were one of the first teams to have individual workouts for players, with social distancing guidelines in there, though.

Kevin Love, Larry Nance Jr., Cedi Osman and Ante Zizic participated, and based on comments from Love and Nance, it did illustrate how just being back on the floor/in the gym is therapeutic for players.

Nonetheless, the whole crew that of course doesn’t apply to at once in workouts, and it’s not certain as to when that will be.

For players that haven’t been in the Cleveland area during the novel coronavirus-induced NBA season hiatus, though, such as Collin Sexton and Andre Drummond, those players before returning have to have a “14-day quarantine,” Cavs head J.B. Bickerstaff said, as 92.3 The Fan’s Daryl Ruiter pointed out.

Anyhow, while it is again uncertain if we’ll see the Cleveland Cavaliers again in game action in 2019-20, a recent video from the team on Thursday showed the players and coaches miss the game so much.

Even just this short clip featuring first Collin Sexton and Darius Garland indicates that, and for Sexton, who is as basketball-obsessed as anybody, especially. Others in the video include player development/assistant coach J.J. Outlaw, Cavs mascot Sir C.C., Cavs shooting coach Andrew Olson and Cavs director of player development Mike Gerrity.

You can just tell these guys are itching to get back in the Cavaliers practice facility, and for Sexton and Garland, with their teammates, such as Love, Nance and others.

We don’t know exactly when full team stuff will eventually be yet, but Sexton, who has led the Cavs in scoring virtually this whole season with 20.8 points per game, per, I’m sure wants to get after it the second he can.

I’m sure Garland is missing his work with Love, Nance, Cedi and the crew, too, along with the player development coaches/assistants/the aforementioned Olson above and others.

It was also encouraging to see the rookie guard finding his stride as a playmaker before missing the Cavaliers’ last five games leading into the hiatus due to a left groin strain. In his last 10 games active for the Wine and Gold, Garland had 12.4 points per outing on 44.1 percent shooting, and had 4.9 assists and only 1.8 turnovers per game, as noted by

At any rate, we again don’t know if the Cavs will be back this season in game action, but as the above video from the team shows, the squad clearly misses the game so much. These players, such as Sexton, and the coaches have to have been/still are going insane.

Goodness do I, like countless other people, miss basketball dearly, too.
