Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue exited Saturday's contest against the Chicago Bulls with an illness and didn't return.

It's the third time this season that Lue was unable to coach an entire game, having also left a game versus the Orlando Magic last month and another one against the Bulls in December.

The Cavaliers held a 69-52 lead at halftime when Lue passed on coaching duties to associate head coach Larry Drew, and held on for a 114-109 win.

Cleveland was already severely undermanned entering the game, as Rodney Hood, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Larry Nance Jr., and Cedi Osman were all sidelined with injuries and Kyle Korver was away to tend to a family emergency.
