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.
Feb 9 - 10:09 AM

Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) is out Monday and is unlikely for Wednesday.

The Cavs will allow him to rest through the break. With Dellavedova out, Mo Williams should get minutes as Kyrie Irving's backup.
Feb 8 - 5:26 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. Sacramento.

Delly's absence means Mo Williams will continue to remain in the rotation, but only as a backup to a healthy Kyrie Irving. Leave Williams on the waiver wire in your fantasy league.
Feb 8 - 11:19 AM

Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

His hamstring issue has been a problem for two weeks and the Cavs may rest him until the break. Mo Williams will be in the rotation again while this news also helps Iman Shumpert because of no Kevin Love.
Feb 6 - 5:55 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) won't play on Friday and he's questionable to return vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.

Tyronn Lue suggested prior to Friday's game that Dellavedova might not be ready to face New Orleans, which isn't a good sign. Mo Williams is picking up a handful of minutes in Delly's absence, but he's not a viable fantasy option.
Feb 5 - 6:25 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Friday vs. the Celtics.

This will be his second straight game on the shelf and the Cavs shouldn't be in any hurry to rush him back. Mo Williams played just 11 minutes on Wednesday as the backup point guard, so there's no real reason to consider him outside of deeper leagues.
Feb 5 - 11:06 AM

Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play against the Hornets on Wednesday.

He is going to rest his bothersome hamstring and it sounds like it's precautionary. The Cavs figure to get Mo Williams back in the rotation tonight, but he's not a reliable fantasy option unless you are hoping for garbage time against a shorthanded Hornets team.
Feb 3 - 5:57 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) is a game-time decision to face the Hornets on Wednesday.

He has been fighting the issue for a week and only played 12 minutes on Monday, so perhaps this hamstring issue explains why. The Cavs don't need Dellavedova too much right now and could opt to throw Mo Williams back in the rotation. We'll have another update shortly.
Feb 3 - 5:39 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 18 points against the Wolves on Monday with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

It's Australia Day today, so apparently that is a new narrative to remember for next season. The Cavs basically ran a tight eight-man rotation, so that would be a good thing for Dellavedova. Still, he's not worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 25 - 10:49 PM

Matthew Dellavedova came off the bench with 12 points, two boards, five assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on 4-of-11 shooting in 27 minutes on Tuesday.

Mo Williams missed his fourth straight game and Delly has quietly been playing well over his last five, averaging 8.0 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 3-pointers in 26 minutes a game. Give him a look if you're in a deeper league and desperate for some guard help.
Jan 13 - 1:28 AM

Matthew Dellavedova struggled in a start on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets, scoring four points on 1-of-5 shooting with seven boards, five assists, two steals and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

Delly averaged 10.5 points, 6.3 assists, 1.8 boards and 1.9 3-pointers in 10 previous starts this season, so this line was a little disappointing. This may be his last start for a long time because Kyrie Irving (rest) doesn't expect to miss anymore back-to-back sets, so his fantasy value is trending down.
Wed, Dec 30, 2015 12:08:00 AM

Matthew Dellavedova will start at point guard vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Kyrie Irving is sitting out for rest purposes, so Delly will run the offense tonight. Dellavedova has averaged 10.5 points, 6.3 assists, 1.8 boards and 1.9 3-pointers in 10 previous starts this season, so make sure he is in your lineup if you own him. Mo Williams should play as well after picking up a DNP-CD on Monday.
Tue, Dec 29, 2015 08:32:00 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started at point guard on Saturday vs. the Blazers and scored 10 points with six assists, one board and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He probably would have played a little more with Kyrie Irving resting for this one, but the game quickly turned into a blowout. Delly has played admirably this season, but his fantasy value is only going to go down when Irving's workload increases.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 01:14:00 AM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 10 points against the Warriors on Friday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover.

He played a lot of minutes next to Kyrie Irving and played down the stretch to try and stop Stephen Curry -- it didn't work. Dellavedova shouldn't hold enough value in standard leagues, especially with Kyrie likely to play close to the mid 30s going forward.
