Waiters ready to play tonight?
By Joe Kaiser
Dion Waiters hasn't played since March 18 as he recovers from the small loose cartilage fragment in his right knee, but he could be back on the court for Cleveland tonight.
According to this update on the Cavs' official site, Waiters is listed as probable for tonight's game against Detroit.
Waiters dropped to No. 9 on David Thorpe's latest NBA Rookie Watch ratings, in part due to his recent absence from the court, but he's shown flashes of a bright future this season with averages of 14.7 points and 3.0 assists. The big key for he and the rest of the Cavs core is staying healthy; he and Kyrie Irving and Anderson Varejao have missed a lot of games this season.
