Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Will play Sunday vs. Lakers

Irving (rest) will play Sunday against the Lakers, Cavaliers play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod reports.

Irving will take the court after opting to rest for Saturday's loss to the Clippers. The veteran point guard has been dealing with minor knee issues as of late. While the knee ailment shouldn't factor into Irving's minutes, it will be something to keep an eye on as the playoffs near. Additionally, Deron Williams is expected to head back to the bench for Saturday's matchup.
