Pistons Look To Rebound In Cleveland From Stinging Chicago Loss

Kyrie Irving won’t be able to help. Rookie guard Dion Waiters wishes he could, but that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.

Likely missing their top two scorers for a fourth consecutive game, the host Cavaliers will look to snap a four-game losing streak Saturday night when they face the Detroit Pistons for the second time in six days.

Out the last 10 games with a broken left index finger, Irving, who is scoring 22.9 points per game, isn’t expected back for a couple of weeks.

Waiters, second on the Cavs (4-16) with 15.2 ppg, has missed the last three contests – starting with Monday’s 89-79 loss at Detroit – with a sprained left ankle, and he’s not likely to return until at least Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers.

“He wants to try to play tomorrow, I just don’t see it after watching him walk,” coach Byron Scott said after Friday’s shootaround. “The other thing is, I’ve always believed when a player comes back, he has to have a full day or practice too. His first chance of doing that would be Monday.”
