The Cleveland Cavaliers believe they'll have point guard Kyrie Irving available on Monday against the New York Knicks.
The Cleveland Cavaliers list Kyrie Irving as "probable" for Monday night's game against the New York Knicks, according to The Associated Press. The point guard has missed three games with a hyperextended knee.
Irving went through a full practice on Sunday and participated in the Cavs' shootaround on Monday, and the AP reports that he will start if he's able to go against New York.
Without Irving, Cleveland went 2-1, beating the Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors before falling on Friday to the Los Angeles Clippers. Veteran guard Shaun Livingston took Irving's place in the starting lineup, and he averaged 13.3 points and three assists in 33 minutes per game.
Update: Irving will play.
Rookies Tyler Zeller and Dion Waiters are "questionable" for the game against the Knicks with an illness.
In his second NBA season Irving, a first-time All-Star, is averaging 23.3 points and 5.6 assists per game. He has missed 14 of the Cavaliers' 59 games this season due to injury. Irving missed 11 games this year with a broken finger before banging his knee last week against teammate Omri Casspi during practice.
