The Wine and Gold are already the walking wounded with Kevin Love on the shelf for at least a month, George Hill is out a week or two with a sprained shoulder, Sam Dekker is nursing a bad sprained ankle and now Cedi Osman has been added to the injury report before their matchup Saturday with the Bulls in Chicago.

The second year player left Wednesday's game against Oklahoma City with back spasms after playing just six minutes, and now Coach Larry Drew has already ruled out Osman against Chicago.

To help get a few healthy bodies on the court, the Cavaliers signed former Grizzlie guard Andrew Harrison to a two way contract.

The former Kentucky Wildcat appeared in one game with the Memphis this season. He owns career averages of 7.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 21.7 minutes per game over 129 games, with 64 starts in three seasons with Memphis.

Cleveland had to waive John Holland from his two-way contract in order to make room on the roster for Harrison.

The Cavaliers and Bulls tip-off Saturday night at 8 in the United Center.
