CLEVELAND: GUARDS: There are some durability concerns, but KYRIE IRVING is on the verge of stardom. He should benefit from the arrival of Anthony Bennett, the kind of pick-and-roll weapon Cleveland has lacked . . . DION WAITERS is still a work-in-progress defensively, and this will likely be another developmental year. He might end up settling in as the leader of the second unit . . . JARRETT JACK seems likely to close out games, even if he doesn't technically start. He's a creative shot-maker who will play close to starter's minutes . . . C.J. MILES is more of a situational three-point threat. SERGEY KARASEV, a polished Euro import, could push him for that role . . . CARRICK FELIX doesn't figure to crack this rotation. FORWARDS: No. 1 overall pick ANTHONY BENNETT will see time at both forward spots, and he'll be a pick-and-pop weapon no matter where he's playing. The question is whether he'll defend well enough to stay on the court for 30 minutes . . . There should also be enough minutes for TRISTAN THOMPSON, who hasn't quite put it together. The 22-year-old has upside though, and is a bigger part of Cleveland's future than Anderson Varejao . . . EARL CLARK gives the Cavs a quality second unit player who can play extended minutes if Bennett is overmatched defensively . . . A starter last year, ALONZO GEE figures to be a second-unit glue guy, but might be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO is once again healthy and once again trade bait. No matter what the starting lineup looks like, he'll play major minutes at the four and five . . . The Cavs are taking a flier on ANDREW BYNUM. With his knee problems, it'd be surprising if he could give them 20-plus good minutes per night . . . TYLER ZELLER is likely the odd man out until Varejao is dealt or Bynum gets injured.
MILWAUKEE: GUARDS: BRANDON KNIGHT slides into Brandon Jennings' point guard slot, but he's a much different player. Knight hasn't proven capable of running the point, and may eventually settle in as an undersized shooter . . . O.J. MAYO will be the focal point of this offense. He should build on his career-best year in Dallas . . . GARY NEAL will give them some instant offense as a sixth man . . . LUKE RIDNOUR provides Knight insurance, and the ability to play either guard spot. He should fit nicely alongside Mayo for stretches . . . KHRIS MIDDLETON could crack the rotation as a capable defender with upside as a shooter . . . Second-rounder NATE WOLTERS must knock down jumpers if he's going to get off the bench. FORWARDS: ERSAN ILYASOVA will once again have to earn his starter's minutes, as the Bucks have loaded up on quality frontcourt depth. He provides more offense than anyone else on the front line . . . CARON BUTLER should start at small forward for this team after freeing himself before ever having to play in Phoenix . . . CARLOS DELFINO will play a key role scoring off the bench. He's a streaky long-range gunner, but defends well enough to stay on the court . . . JOHN HENSON is on the verge of a breakout as an elite rebounder and shot-blocker. He's still a bit behind offensively, which could hold him back in a crowded post rotation . . . GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO was the most intriguing project in a weak draft, but the teenager is nowhere near ready for NBA action. He'll likely see time in the D-League until the second half of the season. CENTERS: We've loved LARRY SANDERS for years, and last year showed why. He's a Defensive POY candidate with a budding offensive game . . . ZAZA PACHULIA reunites with head coach Larry Drew as muscle off the bench . . . EKPE UDOH is likely on the outside looking in for this rotation.

*Cavaliers-Bucks Preview* =========================


Cleveland (2-2) at Milwaukee (1-2), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Larry Drew is pondering another change to what has been an anemic starting lineup for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Without an adjustment, that unit could continue to struggle offensively Wednesday night against the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers, whose defense has been outstanding.

The Bucks (1-2) lost 97-90 to Toronto on Saturday in their home opener, their already ineffective starting five further hamstrung by O.J. Mayo being benched to start the game. The guard scored a game-high 16 after arriving late for shootaround.

He hit a tying 3-pointer with 5:53 remaining, but Milwaukee followed that by going 1 for 6 from the free-throw line over a four-minute stretch.

"I really felt if we just hung around hopefully we could probably try to steal it, but we just didn't make the plays down the stretch," Drew said.

Drew has utilized a different starting lineup for each game. He's been without Brandon Knight due to a hamstring injury for the last two, and Knight's status for Wednesday is uncertain.

More changes could be on the way Wednesday, as Milwaukee's starters rank last in the league with 37.7 points per game. The team's reserves have averaged 55.0 points and 51.2 percent shooting, among the best in the NBA.

"I'm concerned about our energy, our speed, our activity with that first group," Drew said. "I've got to re-assess that."

The Cavaliers (2-2) are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the league at 87.3 points per game, but they've held each opponent to fewer than 95 points.

Cleveland limited Minnesota to fewer than 100 for the first time this season in handing the club its first defeat, 93-92 on Monday. The Cavaliers recorded a season-high 12 blocks along with 10 steals while limiting Kevin Love to 17 points - more than 12 below his average - and 8-of-20 shooting.

The stingy defensive effort - Minnesota shot 36.2 percent - helped compensate for a rough night for Kyrie Irving, who committed a career-high nine turnovers.

"Luckily, K-Love missed a shot and we got the stop," Irving said of Love's missed 3-point attempt with 1.9 seconds remaining.

Irving has been unimpressive thus far, averaging 15.3 points - 8.2 fewer than last year - and 36.9 percent from the field. Perhaps he can establish a rhythm Wednesday, as he's averaging 26.7 points and 55.7 percent shooting in six career matchups with Milwaukee.

Some production from top draft pick Anthony Bennett could help take some pressure off Irving. Bennett was 0 for 3 from the field against the Timberwolves and is 0 for 15 on the season.

Milwaukee will try to shore up its rebounding after surrendering 21 second-chance points on 18 Toronto offensive boards.

The Bucks had won nine straight in the series before dropping the final two meetings last season.
