Perhaps no team in the NBA is as difficult to project for next season as Cleveland, which has a roster full of talented but injury-prone players who could make or break that Cavaliers in 2013-14.

But if everything falls in to place and the Cavs are able to dodge long-term injuries to oft-injured players like Anderson Varejao, Andrew Bynum, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Bennett, this could very well be a playoff team we're talking about here. That, too, is how the ESPN Forecast panel see it; On Monday, the panel predicted an 8th place finish in the Eastern Conference for the Cavs.
