Robert Covington is still out after re-aggravating his injured knee in practice this week. After a strong showing against Milwaukee, expect Jerami Grant to retain his starting spot and to be asked to check LeBron.

On the injury front for the Cavs, JR Smith will be missing his second straight game with a bruised knee. Kyrie Irving remains out with a targeted return for December, and Iman Shumpert is sidelined following off-season surgery on his shooting wrist. The Cavs still have plenty of firepower, though.
