Evan Mobley expects to return to Cavs lineup Saturday vs. Magic

Rookie of the Year front-runner back from sprained elbow suffered on November 15th

Cavs fans can exhale as rookie forward Evan Mobley is set to return early from his sprained elbow sustained on November 15th vs. the Celtics.

The big man was expected to missed at least 2-4 weeks with the injury but he's back and the team needs him. The Wine and Gold have dropped all 5 games since Mobley was injured. The 3rd overall pick out USC was averaging 14.6 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.6 blocks for the Cavaliers before going down.

Cavaliers are hosting the Orlando Magic Saturday at Rocket Mortage Fieldhouse to wrap up a 4 game homestand before beginning a 3 game road trip Monday in Dallas.

Wine and Gold sit at 9-10 and 10th place in the Eastern Conference
