The Cleveland Cavaliers get a much needed boost to a lineup that has suffered many injuries. Against the Lakers, they're expecting to have their superstar back.

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE


The Cleveland Cavaliers announced on Monday that doctors have cleared Irving to practice and the second-year guard is expected to play against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday. Dion Waiters has also missed several games recently and is still questionable with a sprained ankle.

CLEVELAND, OH - Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving (left index finger fracture) has been cleared to resume practice today and is expected to be available to play against the Lakers tomorrow night at The Q.

Zach Harper of CBS Sports probably put it best.
