Report: Jonas Valanciunas (Ankle) Likely to Play in Game 4 vs. Cavaliers

Jonas Valanciunas (Ankle) Likely to Play in Game 4 vs. Cavaliers

Since Saturday’s 99-84 loss to the Toronto Raptors, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been trying to find ways to to thwart big man Bismack Biyombo, who had 26 rebounds and three blocks in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Well, it looks like the challenge is going to get even bigger. Raptors starting center Jonas Valanciunas, who hasn’t played since Game 3 of the second round against the Miami Heat, has been upgraded to a game-time decision as ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reports the 7-footer looks like he will play.

Valanciunas could give the Cavs more problems in the middle. The 24-year-old has been having a terrific postseason, averaging 15.0 points and 12.1 rebounds a game before going down with an ankle injury. He’ll look to bolster the Raptors’ frontline tonight as he attempts to give it a go.
