Cavs Irving practices, awaits word on return
Cleveland Cavaliers rookie guard Kyrie Irving practiced in full on Tuesday and seems poised to return for Wednesday’s tilt versus the Indiana Pacers.
The top overall pick of the draft, Irving has been sidelined for three games with a concussion.
The Cavaliers are awaiting word from the NBA if Irving can return. League protocol on head injuries demands as much.
Irving suffered the injury after hitting the knee of Miami guard Dwyane Wade. The 19-year-old Irving averaging 18.0 points and 5.1 assists this season.
