Irving (back) will play Wednesday against the Rockets, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Irving missed Monday's game due to a sore lower back, but appears to be good to go Wednesday. He should be a focal point in the offense again with LeBron James still unavailable, but now will have to get used to playing alongside J.R. Smith in the backcourt, who was added to the roster Monday as part of a trade that sent Dion Waiters to Oklahoma City.

Irving (back) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the 76ers, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Irving won't travel with the team to Philadelphia after leaving Sunday's loss to the Mavs with soreness in his lower back. Irving, who has no history of back issues, originally tweaked his back on a hard full Friday against Charlotte. The point guard is also battling a nagging left knee injury, but he insists the issues are unrelated. "It's just painful right now, but we just have to get through it," Irving said. Until further notice, consider Irving questionable to play Wednesday against Houston.

Irving should be considered questionable to play Monday against the 76ers, with A.J. Price and Dion Waiters likely to see increased minutes if he sits out.
