Dion Waiters: (Ankle) Out Friday and Saturday
Update: Waiters (ankle) has been ruled out of Friday's game, and coach Byron Scott doesn't think Waiters will be ready to play in Saturday's game either, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Recommendation: Waiters was getting more run at point with Kyrie Irving (finger) sidelined, and it was good to see him working in more of a hybrid (Dwyane Wade-type) guard role. His assists were seeing a nice uptick, and it gave us a different look at Waiters' potential. He still has questionable shot selection, but we're chalking that up to Waiters still getting used to picking his spots in the NBA. We're not ready to peg him the next J.R. Smith just yet. Bench him this weekend.
