Dion Waiters illness.

The Cavs held a team meeting after getting thrashed by Minnesota earlier this week. The meeting was intense and some reports say Dion Waiters’ poor play was a major topic in the meeting.

Others denied Waiters was a major topic in the meeting, but he has been away from the team with a mysterious illness:

The meeting was intense – the Cavs played terrible and lost by 29 points – but two players who were in the room both privately said some of the speculation has been overblown and it wasn’t combative, nor was Dion Waiters a target of the meeting. The players weren’t very happy, but no specific player was singled out. …

As for Waiters and this illness, Mike Brown said he has been to the doctor twice and has a prescription. I’ve heard whispers Waiters knew he was going to get demoted to the second team. Did he know that and make up this illness? Is he really sick? The only one who really knows the answer to that is Waiters.

No one on the team has really seen or heard from Waiters since Wednesday’s game. He didn’t attend Friday’s shootaround because of this illness and didn’t make the trip to Washington for tonight’s game. No one I talked to really knows how sick Waiters is or what all this is about.

This situation will be interesting to follow.
