Jarrett Allen final injury status for Cavs-Magic Game 7

Game 7. Everything is at stake.

Injuries have been a theme all year for the Cleveland Cavaliers, so it’s only fitting that it’s a storyline for what could be the final game of the season.

Jarrett Allen – OUT

Jarrett Allen has missed the last two games for the Cavaliers as he manages pain from a rib injury he suffered in Game 5 against the Orlando Magic. The team announced that Allen is OUT for this winner-take-all Game 7.

The team originally listed Allen as questionable on Saturday night, forcing him to make a playing time decision for Sunday afternoon.

Allen averaged 17.0 points, 13.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals through the first four games of the series before suffering the injury. He was one of Cleveland’s most consistent players during the regular season and the playoffs.

Isaac Okoro will slide into the starting rotation for the injured Allen.

Evan Mobley, Caris LeVert

Evan Mobley rolled his ankle in Game 6 and was seen limping in the locker room after Cleveland’s loss. However, he was not listed on the injury report and appears to be good for Game 7 with the season on the line.

J.B. Bickerstaff confirmed this on Sunday Caris LeVert is dealing with a knee injury, which is why he played just seven minutes in Game 6. Despite the lingering pain, LeVert AVAILABLE for the Cavs in Game 7.
