Cavs Have Weathered the Injury Storm

More than three weeks ago, I wrote about The Potential Impact of Big Z's Injury. The Cleveland Cavaliers had only lost five games by that point and I suggested that they might lose five more games before Zydrunas Ilgauskas returned to action.

Ilgauskas may be back as soon as Thursday. The Cavs have gone 8-3 without him so far. Before he got hurt they were on pace to set an all-time record for point differential; they have slowed down significantly in that regard but, largely thanks to LeBron James and Anderson Varejao, they have been just successful enough to stay on top of the Eastern Conference standings, as I note in my newest article for CavsNews.com:

JJ Hickson is giving Cleveland some good minutes off the bench. From what I've seen he is an active big man with a fair amount of offensive skill. With Z coming back shortly their frontcourt rotation looks even more solid going forward.
