The Cleveland Cavaliers have been working hard during their preseason games over the last week.
They have been working on their new lineup, featuring All-Star Donovan Mitchell, and have been looking like the young, energetic, enthusiastic squad people have expected.
But they have also been without one of their biggest stars.

Evan Mobley hasn’t played in the first three preseason games because of a sprained ankle.
But he is ready to enter the preseason briefly on Friday night, as he is the only confirmed starter for J.B. Bickerstaff’s team.
This will give fans a chance to see one of their favorite players, and someone who is a key to the team’s success moving forward.
Mobley Moving Again
Anyone who watched Mobley last year during his rookie season knows how special he is.
He averaged 15 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists a game and became a pivotal part of the team’s offense and defense.
People spoke of him as a possible Rookie of the Year and that was an honor well-earned.
In his second year, Mobley will be shining even more as his team does as well.
The team’s profile has been propelled to new heights thanks to the Mitchell trade and that means a lot of people will be paying close attention to the crew and Mobley at its center.
There are many reasons to be excited about the Cavaliers in the new season and Mobley is one of the biggest ones.
It sounds like his ankle is healed and Mobley is ready to burst into the new season.
