Irving Expected to Play in Cavs Opener
Kyrie Irving returned to Cavs practice on Sunday and believes he’ll be ready to play in Tuesday’s season opener, but he still must be cleared by team doctors.
“I have confidence I’ll play Tuesday, but it’s up to the doctors,” Irving said. “I feel good right now and we’ll see going into game time.”
Irving had all four wisdom teeth extracted on Wednesday and was bed-ridden for a couple of days. He said he lost about 5 pounds, which is the amount of weight he put on in muscle over the summer.
