The Cleveland Cavaliers are in desperate need of healthy bodies.

A day after rolling with just nine players in a 114-109 win over the Chicago Bulls, the Cavaliers will be signing power forward Okaro White to a 10-day contract, league sources told Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania.

The undrafted 25-year-old was sent from the Miami Heat to the Atlanta Hawks at the trade deadline in exchange for Luke Babbitt, and later waived.

White made six appearances with the Heat this season, averaging 3.3 points and 1.8 rebounds in 13.3 minutes per game.

He underwent surgery in November to repair a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot, and hasn't played since.

This signing brings Cleveland back up to the league minimum of 14 players, with the rule being that a team can only fall down to 13 for up to two weeks.

Rodney Hood, Cedi Osman, Kevin Love, Larry Nance Jr., and Tristan Thompson are all sidelined with various ailments, while Kyle Korver was absent Saturday for personal reasons.
