Cavs Cut Sanders, Look To Add To Playoff Roster – The Cleveland Cavaliers have moved on from the comeback of Larry Sanders and have waived him ahead of their final game of the season, it was announced Wednesday. Sanders played sparingly in five games over the last month after returning to the NBA following a two-year-plus absence. It was a surprising move as the Cavs signed Sanders to a two-year, non-guaranteed deal in March with the goal of preparing him for next season. He had spent most of his time with the Cavs’ D-League team. In his place, the Cavs plan to sign center Edy Tavares, sources said. He blocked 11 shots in two playoff games against the Cavs’ D-League team over the weekend.
Knicks’ Noah Suffers Shoulder Injury – New York Knicks center Joakim Noah is expected to require surgery to repair a right rotator cuff injury and will need several months of rehab, league sources confirm. Noah on Tuesday was still weighing his options on how to deal with the shoulder ailment and no decision had been made as of late Tuesday night, according to league sources. If Noah undergoes surgery, the expectation is that he’d be sidelined for at least four months, though league sources cautioned that it was too early in the process to determine a specific rehab timeline.
