The Cavs are still looking to trade Iman Shumpert, who has $10 million left on his contract. A deal with Houston fell apart, and then the Rockets traded for Chris Paul. That appeared to end all interest in Shumpert.
Derrick Rose Out at least Two More Weeks with Sprained Left Ankle
Cavaliers starting point guard Derrick Rose will miss at least the next two weeks with a sprained left ankle.
The Cavaliers say Rose had additional tests Friday at the Cleveland Clinic Sports Health Center. Rose’s ankle will be immobilized in a boot for the next week, and he will undergo “an extended treatment process over the next two to three weeks.”
“Just a jacked-up ankle,” Rose told ESPN. “I’m just trying to figure it out, bro. Right now, it’s just a jacked-up ankle. Just sore. I’m getting a lot of treatment for it, and tonight will be my first time wearing a boot. So I’ll wear this, for I don’t know how long, to see how it helps.”
Rose injured the ankle Oct. 20 at Milwaukee and missed four games, then returned, before missing Cleveland’s past four games.

Delon Wright Out with Dislocated Right Shoulder
Delon Wright, the Toronto Raptors’ backup guard, has a dislocated right shoulder.
Wright was injured Wednesday night in the second quarter of Toronto’s victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. The Raptors said Friday before their game against New York that tests confirmed “an injury consistent with a dislocated right shoulder.”
The Raptors said Wright will travel with the team to New York City next week for further consultation with Dr. Riley Williams at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Wright missed the first four months last season after undergoing right shoulder surgery.
Wright is averaging 7.6 points and 20.9 minutes this season as the primary backup to starting point guard Kyle Lowry.
