Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue leaves game with apparent illness
Chalk this up to yet another oddity within the Cleveland Cavaliers organization.
During Tuesday night’s game against the Orlando Magic, Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue had to leave the game with an apparent illness.
Lue was seen walking to the locker room with a team trainer and it was later announced that he would not return for the second half.
Ty Lue just left the bench to go to the locker room with Cavs trainer Steve Spiro during the timeout. The Cavs assistants drew up a play together and now Larry Drew is addressing the team in the huddle.— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) February 7, 2018
