Irving, Varejao May Not Return This Season
(Kyrie) Irving is going to practice Tuesday morning with the potential of returning as early as Wednesday, (Cavs coach Byron) Scott said. But the coach also left open the possibility that neither Irving nor (Anderson) Varejao would play again this season.
Is playing the last five games really worth the risk of jeopardizing a summer’s worth of development? Also, do you want two injured players returning to face a desperate Philadelphia side on Wednesday to say nothing of playoff-bound San Antonio, Memphis and Chicago?
“I might be overly cautious with this right now, but it’s in (Irving’s) best interest,” Scott said.
