As punishment for striking Toronto Raptors center Bismark Biyombo in the groin during Game 3, Dahntay Jones will be out of commission for the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4.

This isn’t a huge loss for the Cavs, as Jones hardly plays to begin with. Signed to the squad just before the playoffs after spending his season in the D-league, Jones has averaged 2.9 minutes and one point per game during the playoffs.

That said, given the fact he had earned playing time and was signed specifically for the playoffs, this suspension could hurt the Cavaliers if they experience any injuries at the guard position on Monday night.

It’s also not a good look for a guy who hasn’t yet established himself in the Association.
