Per the Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com, All-Star point guard Darius Garland will be ruled out of the game on Sunday.
#Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff said yesterday that star guard Darius Garland would “probably” be out tonight against Washington. But added “miracles do happen.” Well, no miracle this Sunday. I’m told Garland is OUT tonight. As I reported yesterday, Friday is the target return date.

Garland suffered an eye injury in the first game of the season and did not return.
Donovan Mitchell led the Cavs without Garland on Saturday night, scoring 32 points, grabbing nine rebounds, and dishing out eight assists. The Cavs won the game by a score of 128-96.
Mitchell was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Utah Jazz during the offseason. The three-time NBA All-Star instantly elevates them to the top of the Eastern Conference.
He went to the All-Star Game for the third time in a row last season, and he has never missed the NBA Playoffs in his five seasons in the league.
The Wizards enter the night 2-0, with victories over the Indiana Pacers (on the road on Wednesday) and the Bulls (at home on Friday).
