Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue is on a leave of absence due to health concerns. He reportedly planned to return this week, but it doesn’t appear he’ll resume full duties.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Good to see Lue progressing. It’s a little disconcerting he’s not fully back yet, but at least he appears to be heading in the right direction.

Cleveland has gone 5-1 with Larry Drew as acting head coach, but it’d help to have stability as the playoffs approach. The Cavs’ roster turnover on trade-deadline day already provided enough of a challenge.

Of course, having LeBron James helps. As he said, no matter how shaky things look in the regular season, he can do a lot once he gets into the postseason.
