Cavs' Matthew Dellavedova Expected to Play in Game 4

The Washington Post—June 10, 2015

The Washington Post's Cindy Boren reports that after scoring 20 points during game three of the NBA Finals, Cleveland Cavaliers' Matthew Dellavedova was treated for severe cramping at Cleveland Clinic. 

The article mentions that cramping caused by dehydration is a larger issue for pro athletes who need to be able to play with little time between games. It can limit mobility and a more severe case can cause a secondary issue with cognitive issues, Dr. James Wyss, a physiatrist at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery who was not involved in Dellavedova's treatment, told The Post. "There is access to certain things that can be used to treat dehydration in a locker room," Wyss said, "but not labs that would test for electrolyte imbalance, whether there’s a magnesium deficiency."
