Cleveland Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova experienced severe cramping following Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night and was taken to a local hospital, the team announced late Tuesday night.

Dellavedova was unavailable to speak with the media following the Cavaliers' 96-91 victory over the Warriors in Game 3, during which the second-year guard scored 20 points, had five rebounds and four assists in 39 minutes.

Cleveland leads the best-of-seven series, two games to one.

Dellavedova is averaging 9.7 points and 3.7 rebounds per game in the series.

The Cavaliers say Dellavedova underwent a treatment process that included receiving intravenous fluids at the arena, and that he will continue to receive treatment Tuesday night at the Cleveland Clinic.

Head coach David Blatt provided an update Wednesday afternoon, saying Dellavedova will be ready for Game 4, though he will not play as many minutes:

Game 4 of the NBA Finals is scheduled for Thursday night at 9 p.m. ET at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
