Cavaliers' Lauri Markkanen placed on NBA health and safety protocols

CLEVELAND – Cleveland Cavaliers forward Lauri Markkanen teamed up with teammate Kevin Love and entered NBA health and safety protocols.

The team said Markkanen will miss Wednesday’s game against Portland and his status will be updated “at the appropriate time.”

The seven-footer Markkanen is in his first season with Cleveland after being acquired in a trade from Chicago. He’s averaging 12.9 points and 5.9 rebounds in eight games and his size has given coach JB Bickerstaff some interesting lineup combinations.

On Monday, Love was included in health protocols, presumably for testing positive for COVID-19. He missed a victory over Charlotte.
