Mobley, the third overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, has been a key addition to a Cavaliers team that’s been one of the biggest surprises in the NBA this season.
In his time on the court for the Cavaliers, Mobley has delivered solid all-around numbers. He was placed in health and safety protocols on Dec. 18.
Despite Mobley’s absence, the 20-13 Cavaliers are on a hot streak. Their most recent win was a 144-99 home blowout of the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.
The Cavaliers will take on the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Mobley is listed as questionable.
