Sir’Dominic is more than just an interesting name. He’s actually a solid player, especially on the defensive end of the floor.
In his 41 games played this season (13 starts), Pointer has racked up averages of 12.0 points on 44.4 percent shooting from the field (34.2 percent from beyond the arc), 5.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.9 steals in 25.9 minutes per outing.
The Cavs have struggled to find a rhythm this season, as their 17-44 overall record can attest. Shortly after the All-Star break, John Beilein decided to step down as head coach. As a result, J.B. Bickerstaff was elevated to the position.
Exactly when Pointer will be available for action with the Cavs is not clear at this point. Cleveland will serve as hosts to the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. Tip-off inside Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse is set for 7:00 p.m. ET.
