Cleveland Cavaliers big man Dean Wade continues to make some good progress in his road to full recovery. 

Per Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer, the big man has finally returned to doing on-court activities following a meniscus surgery. 

Wade suffered from a right knee meniscus tear in March and was ruled out for the rest of the 2021-2022 campaign. Via 51 games, he had an average of 5.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 19.2 minutes of action. 

Wade’s absence served as a huge blow on the Cavs’ frontcourt slate in late season, coming up short in advancing to the playoffs after failing to capitalize their two Play-in opportunities to secure a slot. 

The Cavs do have a $1.91 million team option on Wade for the next season.
