Matthew Dellavedova scored 7 points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3PT) with six rebounds, 14 assists, and one steal in 31 minutes as a starter in Saturday night’s 104-102 win over Denver.
Delly was finding all his teammates tonight on his way to a career-high 14 assists. With Darius Garland on the shelf, and out for the foreseeable future, Dellavedova has taken full advantage of his opportunity as a starter. In his last three games, he’s averaged nine assists in 33 minutes. He’s worth a look from owners in deep leagues who need help in the assists category.
Matthew Dellavedova scored zero points (0-8 FG, 0-5 3PT) with five rebounds and four assists across 35 minutes in Thursday's 112-106 loss to the Celtics.
Dellavedova was forced into action once Kevin Porter (head) exited the game and did not return. Despite not scoring a point, Dellavedova logged a season-high 35 minutes and chipped in with five rebounds and four assists. Cleveland is without both point guards Kevin Porter and Darius Garland, the 29-year old could see uptick in minutes in Saturday's tilt against the Nuggets. Dellavedova is nothing more than a deep-league flyer at this point of his career.
Matthew Dellavedova managed five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), nine assists, two rebounds and a steal over 29 minutes in the Cavs’ 126-113 loss to the Jazz on Monday.
Delly provided solid production off the bench in Monday's loss, logging a season-high minutes total thanks to the absence of Darius Garland. Over his last four games, the Australian guard has seen a little extra run, averaging 22.8 minutes per contest. With Cleveland's rotation wearing thin, he could see an increase in playing time moving forward.
Matthew Dellavedova furnished 14 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and two assists over 12 minutes in the Cavs’ 128-103 loss to the Clippers on Tuesday.
Delly produced a season-high point total Tuesday while leading the Cavs' bench in scoring. Without Kevin Love and down big against Los Angeles, John Beilein emptied his bench, allowing Dellavedova some run after a DNP-CD on Monday. The Australian guard isn't on the fantasy radar at this time, as he's averaged just 12.9 minutes per tilt this season.
Matthew Dellavedova will miss Friday's matchup with Indiana for personal reasons.
Cleveland plays back-to-back games, so he may be unavailable for that quick turnaround as well. Delly is averaging 2.5 points and 2.5 assists in four games this season.
