Tristan Thompson Expected to Make Return Tomorrow vs. Hawks

Tristan Thompson is returning from injury but his effectiveness will be an open question

He's averaging 24.2 points and 11.5 rebounds over his last six games. Center Tristan Thompson will come off the bench and play for the first time since November 1. The sixth-year center was diagnosed with a left calf strain and given an estimated recovery timetable of 3-4 weeks.

Lue also disclosed power forward Kevin Love (left hip) will return to the starting lineup following a one-game absence and center Tristan Thompson will make his first appearance since November 1 after battling a left calf injury. After being subbed in and out of the Cavs' starting lineup at the start of the season, the 6-foot-9 center is expected to resume a reserve role.

Lue said he would look to LeBron James to play point guard with the second unit in Wade's absence.

Love missed Saturday's win over the 76ers with a sore left hip. It means Love stays at the 5 and Jae Crowder remains in the lineup. Lue said Thompson would be on a minute restriction, but he would not specify what that range would be. He has to get his wind back, he has to get his rhythm back. He's a big piece of our team.
