Kyrie Irving PG CLE 12 hours ago

Irving (knee) said that he is feeling good after a few days of rest, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports. He missed two of the four games against the Hawks in the Eastern Conference finals.

Irving only averaged 13.0 points in his two games against Atlanta, but the Cavaliers will need more production from their All-Star point guard to compete with the Warriors. In the two games against Golden State in the regular season, Irving provided 23.5 points but only made 37.5 percent of his field goals.

Irving (knee) started Tuesday's Game 4 against the Hawks after sitting out Games 2 and 3 due to injury. He put up 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block in 22 minutes.

Irving was given a 25-minute limitation for his return to game action, and he came in just under that (22) as the Cavs shellacked the Hawks to close out the Eastern Conference finals. Matthew Dellavedova filled in as the starting point guard in Games 2 and 3 of the series when Irving sat out, but with Irving's return to the starting lineup, Delly moved back to his customary bench role as the Cavs' primary backup point guard. Irving's gait looked a little off at times Tuesday, but overall, he looked healthy, and it'd be surprising if he wasn't ready for Game 1 of the NBA Finals when they kick off on June 4.

Irving (knee) will play and start in Tuesday's Game 5, but will have a 25-minute time limit, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo reports.

After going through pre-game warmups, Irving has been deemed healthy enough to play but will not play his usual workload. With 25 minutes being the absolute limit, expectations should be tempered for Irving and Matthew Dellavedova should still have some fantasy value seeing as though Irving will be limited.

Irving (knee) will warm up before a decision regarding his Game 4 status is made, according to head coach David Blatt, Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated reports.

Earlier reports stated that the Cavaliers were optimistic Irving would play, but it is clear they wish to see him warm up before they know for sure whether their All-Star point guard is healthy enough to play.

Irving (shoulder) and the Cavaliers are optimistic that he will play in Tuesday's Game 4, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo reports.

Irving has missed the past two games of the Eastern Conference finals and it now looks as if he will be cleared to return in a close-out Game 4 for Cleveland. He will still be a game-time decision as the matchup approaches, and even if he is cleared to go, it is very possible that his minutes are limited seeing as though the Cavaliers has a 3-0 lead in the series.

Irving (knee) in on the court for Tuesday's morning shootaorund, Joe Vardon of Northeast Ohio Media Group reports.

Irving remains questionable to play in Tuesday's potentially series-clinching Game 4, as he continues to battle knee tendinitis and a sprained foot. He was spotted working with the starters at shootaround, but it's unclear if that's indicative of his status. If the Cavs are able to close out Atlanta on Tuesday, they'll have more than a week off before the Finals, so it will be up to the team's medical staff to determine whether it's worth playing Irving and potentially aggravating the injuries. If he's again held out, expect Matthew Dellavedova to get the start at point guard.

Irving (knee) remains questionable for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Hawks, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Irving, who sat out Games 2 and 3, did some on-court work Monday but is still unable to explode off of his left leg. While there's a chance he could play in Game 4, the Cavaliers are up 3-0 in the series with a chance to close out at home, so the benefits of playing Irving at less than 100 percent may not outweigh the detriments. If the Cavs are able to close out the series, they'll have nine games off before the start of the finals.

Irving (knee) is questionable to take the floor Tuesday against the Hawks, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Irving has back-to-back DNPs on the ledger, as he tends to tendinitis in his left knee. Even though he completed a 40-minute workout with the Cavalier's development staff Saturday, team doctors opted to hold the guard out Sunday. With practice on the docket Monday, Irving's participation level could indicate whether a return is possible Tuesday, but Cleveland's 3-0 series lead provides the rationalization for another absence.

Irving (knee) will not play in Sunday's Game 3 against the Hawks, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

Despite going through pregame warmups, Irving will unsurprisingly miss a second straight game, which means Matthew Dellavedova figures to get another start at point guard. While Irving's increased activity level hints at a potential return for Tuesday's Game 4, the Cavs may not want to push things if they grab a 3-0 lead Sunday night.

Irving (knee) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's Game 3 matchup with the Hawks, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

Irving will meet with doctors before the game to determine his status, but the decision probably won't come until the opening tip draws near. After sitting out Game 2, he did participate in morning shootaround Sunday, but it's believed he's more likely to sit than to play.
