Report: Tyronn Lue Takes Another Step in Right Direction to Resume Coaching Duties

Tyronn Lue Cavs

Another step in the eventual return of Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue took place on Tuesday morning when he was back on the court for the team’s morning shootaround. While Lue spoke with members of the Cavaliers’ coaching staff at the team’s practice facility, the team made a point to note that he would not resume coaching the team for Tuesday night’s home game against the Toronto Raptors.

Lue has missed the team’s last eight games after having left the bench during the Cavs’ March 17 win at Chicago. He was given a health-related leave of absence by the team two days later to deal with concerns that had arisen over the course of what’s been a trying season for the Cavaliers. Those related to health issues like insomnia and chest pains.

Last Friday, Lue returned to Quicken Loans Arena to visit with the team and the Cleveland support staff, but assistant coach Larry Drew again coached the team in Lue’s place. Since taking over for Lue, Drew has led the Cavs to a 7-1 record.

Though no official return date has been given, Lue could return to his head coaching role in one of the team’s remaining four regular season games. The NBA postseason is set to get underway on April 14.
