Kyrie Irving active, will start vs. Bucks

Kyrie Irving returns from an ankle injury Tuesday in Milwaukee.

After missing Sunday's game against the Charlotte Hornets, Kyrie Irving will play tonight when the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Milwaukee Bucks.

He was listed as questionable this morning, but went through shootaround with no issues per Chris Haynes of cleveland.com. Per Haynes, Irving injured his ankle Friday in Atlanta in the Cavs' win over the Hawks.

This is a good thing for the Cavs. There are just six games left in the season and Irving still is working himself back into form. Plus, the Cavs are still settling into a groove as a team as the playoffs come near. If Irving is healthy enough to play, he probably should. For him, getting live reps seems a more important getting rest.
