Kyrie Irving Returns to Action After Injury

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Kyrie Irving suffered a fractured hand this offseason. But after successful surgery and some rehab, he's ready to ball again.

It was certainly an interesting summer for Kyrie Irving. He was invited to play with the USA Select team and absolutely put on a show during scrimmages with the eventual gold medal winners. Despite the fact that he torched the NBA and won Rookie of the Year, this was really the first time that he burst onto the national scene. People know who Kyrie Irving is and he's finally getting the hype he deserves.

Unfortunately, Kyrie suffered a broken hand in a freak accident during practice just days later. The injury kept him out of the Cavaliers' Summer League games in Vegas. I guess it's nice that this injury happened during the offseason, as opposed to in the middle of the season. After a successful surgery and several weeks in a cast, Kyrie is finally ready to return to 5-on-5 basketball, according to Yahoo! Sports.

"Kyrie Irving was back at the Cleveland Cavaliers' practice facility on Monday, playing in his first five-on-five scrimmage since breaking his right hand more than two months ago."

Uncle Drew was a total stud for a rookie last year. He looked like every bit the part of an NBA superstar. I can't wait to see what Kyrie's got in store for us this year.

"That was just a stepping stone winning rookie of the year," Irving said. "Now the real work starts. You have to continue to get better every single year."
