Cleveland Cavaliers’ Evan Mobley (elbow) expected back Saturday


Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Evan Mobley is expected to return Saturday against the Orlando Magic, The Athletic reported.

Mobley, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, sustained an elbow injury against the Boston Celtics on Nov. 15. The team originally projected the right elbow sprain would keep him out of action for two to four weeks.

The Cavaliers are 0-4 in his absence.

The 20-year-old forward is averaging 14.6 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.6 blocks in 15 games this season.
