Kyrie Irving Nearing Return From Concussion, Likely To Play Wednesday

New, comments

As you all know, Kyrie Irving suffered a concussion in the last game against the Miami Heat when he hit his head on the knee of Dwyane Wade. He has since missed three games, in which Ramon Sessions has filled in quite admirably, I might add.

During that span, the Cavs also lost Anderson Varejao to a broken wrist, so it's been a pretty rough week for the wine-and-golders. The good news is that Kyrie is recovering nicely. He participated in practice on a limited basis on Monday and after undergoing a few more tests should be a full participant on Tuesday. This all leads up to him playing on Wednesday night when the Cavaliers host the Indiana Pacers. Concussions are tricky things, so this is obviously assuming that he doesn't have any setbacks and the symptoms don't return.

As it stands right now, feel free to pencil Kyrie Irving into the starting lineup for Wednesday night.

There's still no update on Andy as far as I know. The initial assumption is that he will be out for around 4 to 6 weeks. Of course, all of that changes if he ends up needing surgery. Hopefully we have a better idea of his timetable after the team meets today.
