Cavs Luke Walton will not travel with the team to Champaign, IL for their game against Chicago on Friday due to a left hamstring strain. For those who were looking to see what Walton can do for this re-building, up-start Cavaliers team will just have to wait a bit longer to see how the veteran fits in.
Walton’s injury occurred during training camp. I’m told all three Grateful Dead skeletons on his right arm are ship shape. #Cavs

All of this is tongue-in-cheek of course. Everyone knows Walton is here because his salary helped match the deal and the Cavaliers’ real compensation for Ramon Sessions and Christian Eyenga was the 2012 first round pick from the Lakers. That turned out to be Tyler Zeller after spinning that pick with the Dallas Mavericks.
