The Cleveland Cavaliers are days away to take a basketball court for the first time since March, but several key players are missing time due to COVID-19 and other issues.

According to Evan Dammarel of Forbes, JaVale McGee, Kevin Porter Jr. and several other members of the team were absent from the camp on Friday.

As the NBA announced a few days ago, 48 players were tested positive for coronavirus in the initial testing phase. So, a few absences are to be expected.

Both McGee and Kevin Porter Jr. are going to be regular starters this year for Cleveland, as the team is preparing for another tough rebuilding season.
