2019 Fantasy Outlook
Garland entered his freshman year at Vanderbilt as a five-star prospect but played just five games on the season due to a knee injury. He's reportedly back to 100 percent following knee surgery and will look to showcase in the NBA the talent he didn't have the chance to show much in college. In the five games he did play, he averaged 16.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists while shooting 53.7 percent from the field and 47.8 percent from three on 23 attempts. Though just 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, Garland is expected to share the backcourt with last year's first-round pick, Collin Sexton, who is 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds himself. While the Cavaliers will be at a severe disadvantage on the defensive end, it's possible the offensive capabilities of the guards will outweigh that -- think Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Moreover, Cleveland is in a full rebuild, so expect Garland to be given plenty of reps. Read Past Outlooks

Expected to be ready for camp

Garland (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Garland, who tore his meniscus in November, had a "clean-up" procedure before the NBA Draft. While it didn't stop him from working out for teams, including the Cavaliers, the team opted to be cautious with the rookie, withholding him from summer league. Since then, he's reportedly been working out to get in game shape. All signs are pointing toward Garland being fully healthy when team activities start up again.
