CAVALIERS AT SPURS, 8:30 P.M. ET

TV: League Pass

  • The Spurs will be without forward Boris Diaw, who suffered a rib contusion after a collision with a photographer’s camera in the second half of Friday’s game against Memphis. The cause of the injury upset coach Gregg Popovich. “We’re going to continue to moan and groan about it,” Popovich said. “We have many times. It’s going to make a big difference at some point. You complain in the street about cars here and there: ‘We need a stop sign.’ But the stop sign doesn’t go up until some little kid gets killed. I have a feeling that when of the big boys breaks an ankle or something because all of those people are right there, under the bucket, then maybe something will get done.” Popovich did not say how long Diaw will be out. Diaw was averaging 11.1 points.
  • Cavaliers guard C.J. Miles remains out with a right calf strain. Rookie Matthew Dellavedova will start in his place again for the second night.
  • Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said Tyler Zeller, who had been nursing a right ankle sprain, is fine. Brown also said that Anthony Bennett, the No. 1 overall draft pick, is healthy. Bennett did not play in New Orleans and was not listed as injured. He’s played 14 minutes the last three games and scored two points.
