Darius Garland nearing return

Darius Garland has missed the last 13 games since suffering a fractured jaw against the Boston Celtics. He had his jaw wired shut to allow the healing process to occur, so he has been unable to conduct strenuous activity or eat much mroe than liquids for the past month.

That changed Monday, as the wiring was removed. Garland was immediately out on the court for a shooting workout before the Cavaliers' game against the Chicago Bulls. As reported by's Chris Fedor, the team hopes he will return by the end of January.

Donovan Mitchell trade pitch

The rumor mill tends to swirl around a player whether it makes sense or not, but there are some very real reasons the Cleveland Cavaliers could (many would say should, or even must) consider trading their star guard by this season's Trade Deadline. That has led to a number of mock trades trying to sort out which package makes the most sense for Cleveland in a Mitchell deal.

That analysis is worthwhile, even if it seems sensational, so we try to engage with the conversation and provide analysis on which trade returns make sense and which are outlandish. For example, one three-team deal would land not one but two quality players in Cleveland; is it worth it for the Cavs to entertain?
