Matthew Dellavedova finished Wednesday's home loss with six points, four rebounds and two assists in a mere six minutes of action.
Delly started the game but was benched after halftime as a precaution, with Dahntay Jones taking over as a starter. Last year's playoff heroics notwithstanding, Dellavedova isn't on the fantasy radar while Kyrie Irving is healthy. Apr 13 - 11:48 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

Kyrie Irving (ankle) is returning to action, so those of you who picked up Dellavedova can move on. He's averaging 7.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.0 boards, 0.6 steals and 1.2 3-pointers off the bench this season.
Apr 5 - 6:50 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started vs. the Hornets on Sunday and notched six points, five rebounds and nine assists in 31 minutes during the Cavs' home victory.

Delly earned the start in place of Kyrie Irving, who is day-to-day with a sprained ankle. His two made field goals were both 3-pointers and he is Tyronn Lue's clear favorite behind Irving, but neither he nor Mo Williams (six points in 13 minutes) is worth owning in typical leagues.
Apr 3 - 6:20 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will start Sunday vs. the Hornets with Kyrie Irving (ankle) unavailable.

In Dellavedova's previous 12 starts this season he has compiled averages of 9.9 points, 5.8 assists, 2.4 boards, 1.8 triples and 1.6 turnovers per contest on 45.7 percent shooting from the field. He's someone to consider as a low-end streamer option or punt play in DFS.
Apr 3 - 1:50 PM

Matthew Dellavedova could get a maintenance day down the stretch.

Coach Tyronn Lue wants to keep all of his players fresh for the postseason, but there aren't too many fantasy implications here because Dellavedova is better suited for deeper leagues anyways. The Cavs have a back-to-back set coming up on Thursday vs. the Nets and Friday vs. the Hawks. Mo Williams will soak up Delly's minutes if he ever sits.
Mar 27 - 1:28 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 10 points with four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in a start on Saturday against the Knicks.

He filled in for Kyrie Irving (rest) tonight and will move back to his bench role. Dellavedova is really going to have to be hot from the field to have value in DFS because his usage rate is so small, but he adds some dimes, steals and treys for owners in standard-style leagues. Just keep that in mind the next time Irving rests.
Mar 26 - 11:51 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will start on Saturday vs. the Knicks.

He will replace Kyrie Irving (rest) in the first unit tonight. Mo Williams (knee) could also return to action on Saturday, but his minutes will likely be limited. In 11 previous starts this season, Dellavedova has averages of 9.9 points, 6.2 assists, 2.3 boards and 1.7 3-pointers, so he's worth a look in DFS.
Mar 26 - 10:47 AM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 10 points with seven assists, three 3-pointers, one rebound and one steal in 26 minutes vs. the Hornets on Wednesday.

When Dellavedova is playing alongside Cleveland's starters, minus Kyrie Irving, the Cavs average +22.4 points per 100 possessions. It's easy to see why coach Tyronn Lue prefers him as a backup over Mo Williams, but it's not a situation that will yield fantasy value while Kyrie is healthy.
Feb 24 - 10:14 PM

Matthew Dellavedova played 29 minutes on Sunday, finishing a win vs. the Thunder with two points, seven assists and one rebound.

His minutes spiked due to Kyrie Irving's early exit with an illness, so this doesn't have any long-term consequences. The only real takeaway for fantasy owners is that Delly is the clear-cut backup PG in Cleveland -- Mo Williams picked up a DNP-CD.
Feb 21 - 6:40 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) returned on Thursday against the Bulls with seven points, one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes.

He picked up all of the backup point guard minutes tonight and didn't get any minutes as a combo guard. Dellavedova won't have much value while Kyrie Irving is healthy.
Feb 18 - 11:12 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will play against the Bulls on Thursday.

He will back up Kyrie Irving and should see minutes around 20, assuming he stays healthy. Mo Williams may be bumped from the rotation tonight. Dellavedova is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 18 - 7:25 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Bulls.

While Dellavedova was targeting a post-All Star Break return, we'll have to wait and see if he's able to hit his goal. We'll keep an eye on his status after shootaround, but his return to the lineup would bump Mo Williams from the rotation again.
Feb 18 - 11:23 AM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) is probable to return against the Bulls on Thursday.

He is good to go after a lingering hamstring problem bothered him for three weeks. Dellavedova's return could bump Mo Williams from the rotation.
Feb 17 - 4:34 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Wednesday against the Lakers.

He was listed as out all day and it's confirmed he won't play. Mo Williams will get some extra minutes again, but Dellavedova could be back after the break.
Feb 10 - 6:54 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) is likely out until after the All-Star break.

The Cavs won't confirm that Delly will miss Wednesday's game against the Lakers, but keeping him out until after the break will give him 17 days in between games to heal his hamstring. We'll keep an eye on his status after shootaround on Wednesday, but Mo Williams will likely see a bit of a minutes boost against the Lakers.
