Keep an eye on October 25. Chicago would be eligible for roster relief and apply for the hardship exception. The exception is granted if a team has four players that have missed at least three regular season games with an injury. The Bulls with 15 contracts would be granted a roster spot. Chicago could also start the 45 day clock on one of their two-way contracts, Ryan Arcidiacono or Antonio Blakeney.

Draymond Green to ESPN: "I'll be good. I'm fine."

Warriors forward Draymond Green told ESPN's The Undefeated that his knee is "very sore" and he will get it looked at on Wednesday. Good news was he walked out on his own power and said he doesn't think the injury was major.

LeBron James said the Cleveland fan base gave Kyrie Irving a pretty easy time during his first return trip to Quicken Loans Arena. "It was nothing," James said. "That was nothing. What do you want me to say? I've experienced big boos before. That was like a pat on the back. It could never… I love our fans to death. That was nothing."

Tyronn Lue said JR Smith's first go as the Cavs' sixth man was "good" as he put up 10 points on 4-for-7 shooting and four rebounds in 22 minutes but his back stiffened up on him, leading to only three minutes of playing time in the fourth quarter. "We had to get him out," Lue said. "But he was good."

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Ty Lue took a page out of his own coaching manual from his very first postgame press conference by ripping his team for their conditioning following the Cavs' 102-99 win over Boston. "I thought our pace was really terrible tonight," Lue said. "We've got to get in better shape. As far as pushing ourselves, not saving ourselves. We've got to do a better job of playing hard six or seven minutes, you get tired, come out. Our pace was really slow. To hold a team to 41 percent shooting and they were at 36 or 37 for a while and not play with pace getting up and down the floor, that's not good for us. We want to play fast, we want to get up and down the floor. I thought tonight we settled and played a half-court game."
