CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Shams Charania of ‘The Athletic’ is reporting that Cleveland Cavaliers’ All-Star center Jarrett Allen is officially listed as questionable for Friday night’s 8th seed play-in game against the Atlanta Hawks.
He is expected to attempt to play. Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com is reporting that Allen has done everything possible to return to the lineup.
Allen has been out with a fractured finger in his right hand suffered in the Cavs game against the Raptors in early March.
He is averaging a career-best 16.1 points and 10.8 rebounds this season.
The winner of Friday night’s matchup between Atlanta and Cleveland clinches the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference and a postseason date with the Miami Heat.
Game one of that Eastern Conference First Round series will take place on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Miami.
