Sasha Pavlovic Ready to Play
One in and one is out. Yesterday the Cavaliers shut down Eric Snow to let him rehab his left knee which he repaired in October. Eric Snow never been a factor this season and he has taken a player/coach role.
On the bright side, Pavlovic is cleared to play tonight against the Nets. Sasha was sidelined January 23rd for a midfoot sprain. He was cleared for full contact over the weekend after missing 23 games because of the injury.
He is not 100% yet and it’s not clear if he is going to start tonight in place of Devin Brown.
“It hurts a little bit when I go right because I am squeezing that part I hurt, but they told me it is going to be like that for a couple more weeks,” said Pavlovic, who has missed 23 games with the injury. ”I have to play with the pain, but I feel very good.”
Ben Wallace said his back is still bothering him. “I’m going to keep working at it and trying to get it to calm down so I can get back,” Wallace said. “I’m going to try to get out there and see what it feels like. If it doesn’t feel right, I’ll probably sit out”
Joe Smith might start in place of Ben Wallace.
