Report: Walter Tavares out indefinitely with broken right hand
After today’s practice session at Cleveland Clinic Courts, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue spoke to members of the media with regards to his team’s extended layover. Coach Lue gave credit to the Wizards and Celtics alike, saying: “Both teams are good.” Just as he did in the previous round of the playoffs, Coach Lue has been preparing his players for either team.
As the conversation went on, coach Lue revealed that 7’3″ center Walter Edy Tavares suffered a broken right hand. Coach Lue says it’s one of the reasons the champs haven’t held scrimmages this week.
