CLEVELAND (AP) — Cavaliers guards Dion Waiters and Matthew Dellavedova are expected to be released from a New Orleans hospital after becoming sick Friday night.

The Cavs said Waiters and Dellavedova will return to Ohio on Saturday after a night at the Ochsner Medical Center. Waiters played 10 minutes in the first half against the Pelicans before being taken from the arena because of abdominal pain. Tests were negative.

The team said Dellavedova had stomach issues following the game and was admitted to the hospital. The Cavs did not disclose Dellavedova's illness and that he didn't travel until hours after the team had already returned to Cleveland.

Dellavedova played 24 minutes but did not score in the 119-114 loss. He recently returned after missing 15 games with a sprained left knee.
