      Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Expected back by January

      Irving (knee) is expected to return before January, Adam Zagoria of SportsNet New York reports. The Cavaliers have declined to reveal an official return timetable for Irving, but the target dates have seemingly always ranged between mid-December and Christmas Day, so this report would seem to support that. Irving, who began taking part in 5-on-0 and 1-on-1 work during practices last week, should steadily increase his activities from here, but until he gets in about a week of full practices, his season debut will remain far off.

      Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Progressing well, still out indefinitely

      Irving (knee) has progressed to 5-on-0 and 1-on-1 work in practice, but remains without a timetable to return, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports. Coach David Blatt seemed encouraged by Irving's progress, but he will likely remain out of game action for several weeks.

      Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Cleared for weight-bearing activities on injured knee

      Irving (knee) was recently cleared for weight-bearing activites, Chris Haynes of reports. He still isn't able to do any on-court work, but this is a big step for Irving as he progresses in his rehab. He'll now work on building up leg strength until he is able to return to the practice court. That could be some time and he'll need to show a week of of full practice with no setbacks before the team allows him to make his debut, so his return is still very much in the distance.

      Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Doing contact work

      Irving (knee) has been doing contact work of late, ESPN Cleveland reports. ESPN's Brian Windhorst said Thursday that Irving is scrimmaging in 3-on-3 settings and noted that he expects Irving to return in "a couple of weeks." That timetable likely more Windhorst's opinion than anything else, so take it with a grain of salt, but it appears Irving is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a fractured knee cap.

      Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Travels with team to Philadelphia

      Irving (knee) traveled with the Cavaliers to Philadelphia on Monday, Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Irving isn't a candidate to play Monday and likely not for several weeks, but the fact that he's traveling with the team suggests that he's making progress in his rehab on some level. The Cavaliers aren't expected to issue a timetable for Irving's return until he at least takes part in a few practices with the team.

      Cavaliers G J.R. Smith scores 10 in return from injury

      Cavaliers sharpshooter J.R. Smith started Thursday and posted 10 points and five assists in a preseason loss to the Pacers. Smith was hampered by a left hamstring injury, but toughed it out and played 24 minutes. The value of Smith is mainly on his three-pointers and he should see plenty of playing time at the beginning of the season in the absence of Kyrie Irving.

      Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving Effectively ruled out for start of season

      Though Irving (knee) remains without a concrete return timetable, Cavaliers coach David Blatt said earlier this week that the point guard won't realistically be ready for the start of the regular season, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Irving, who fractured his left kneecap in the NBA Finals, has begun running and other rehab activities, but remains a ways off returning to practice. The Cavaliers should gain more clarity on a potential return date for Irving in the weeks to come, but it appears quite likely that he'll miss a significant chunk of time this season. The Cavaliers are preparing to use Mo Williams as their starting point guard while Irving remains unavailable.

      Cavaliers unsure when guard Kyrie Irving will return

      Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving (knee) remains without a firm return timetable, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Speaking on Monday, Irving said he's been running for the past three weeks but will not be cleared to participate in two-a-day practices during camp. Irving said he does not plan to take any days off, however, as he works toward what will likely be a December or January return. Veteran free agent signee Mo Williams will likely start at point guard and see the bulk of the minutes so long as Irving remains out. Matthew Dellavedova will serve as Williams' backup, with LeBron James, of course, assuming playmaking duties in certain situations.

      Report: Cavaliers PG Kyrie Irving to be active in training camp

      Reports earlier in the offseason that Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving will be sidelined into January with a knee injury sustained in Game 1 of the NBA Finals appear way off-base, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group, which claims he will be active during training camp. It is believed, however, that the injury-prone Irving will be limited in the preseason and perhaps worked in slowly early in the regular season. He refused to give a timetable for his return to action during a recent interview with the Associated Press. Irving had his healthiest and arguably best year before going down, though he was hobbled when active during the playoffs. He averaged 21.7 points and 5.2 assists per game and shot a career-best 41.5 percent from beyond the arc.
