Matthew Cleveland has warmed up and stretched with the team. Looks like he’ll be probable to play with the Noles today after missing the last two games. @FSUHoops— MAX (@maxescarpio) February 25, 2023
The Florida State Seminoles are set to visit their in-state rival in the No. 13 Miami Hurricanes at 4 p.m. ET this afternoon and the status of sophomore guard Matthew Cleveland is up in the air heading into the contest. He has been dealing with back spasms and has been sidelined for the last two games. CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported this morning that he will be a game time decision for the ACC showdown.
Cleveland last appeared in the team’s 83-75 loss to Pitt two weeks ago, putting up just six points and six rebounds in 36 minutes of action. The Atlanta native has been a lone bright spot in a miserable season for the Seminoles, averaging 14 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. He has been slowing creeping onto the NBA Draft radar and could be a second-round pick this summer.
