|Dean Wade: Doubtful for opener|
Wade (ankle) is doubtful for Wednesday's season opener against the Grizzlies.
The Scoop: Wade didn't practice Monday, so it's not surprising to see him doubtful for Wednesday's game. Even when available, he'll be in a small role.

|Dean Wade: Doesn't practice Monday|
Wade (ankle) didn't practice Monday, and his status for Wednesday's regular-season opener is uncertain, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The Scoop: Wade was a solid contributor throughout the preseason for the Cavaliers, but he appears to have picked up an ankle injury, which may impact his status for the regular season. With Evan Mobley and Lauri Markkanen in town for the 2021-22 season, Wade's opportunities may be harder to come by then a year ago, so he will need every chance he can get to suit up.

|Dean Wade: Logs 12 points, seven rebounds|
Wade recorded 12 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one assist across 23 minutes during a 110-94 preseason win Friday at Indiana.
The Scoop: Wade showed what he could provide when given a chance to play. However, the Cavaliers acquired Evan Mobley and Lauri Markkanen during their recent offseason. The new signings indicate that Wade may have fewer chances to play than he did an NBA season ago.

|Dean Wade: Finishes with solid game|
Wade posted 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt), eight rebounds, three assists and a steal across 35 minutes in Sunday's 123-109 loss to the Nets.
The Scoop: No matter how next season shakes down for the Cavaliers, they've finally realized Wade's value in his second year with the squad. He excelled in place of Kevin Love (calf) and has been a bright spot amidst a depth chart that has been riddled with injuries throughout the season.
