The absences of Collin Sexton, Lauri Markkanen and Kevin Love come as no surprise, with the latter two players continuing to be held out because of non-injury issues.

In the case of Lamar Stevens, his absence isn’t a key loss, considering he’s come off the bench in all nine of his appearances this season. During that time on the court, he’s averaging just 1.9 points and 1.6 rebounds per game.

Markkanen had been a welcome addition to the Cavaliers’ roster after being acquired during the offseason, with Cavs head coach J.B. Bickerstaff offering high praise for his efforts.

The 33-year-old Love has seen his role with the team diminish considerably this season, with the veteran averaging just 9.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists per contest.

Sexton’s scoring touch has been missed by the improving Cavaliers, who enter the game against the Celtics with a season record of 8-5. Prior to his injury, he had averaged 16.0 points per game, which remains second-best for the team this season.

The Cavaliers have a quick turnaround for Saturday night’s game after they defeated the Detroit Pistons…
