Kyrie Irving PG CLE 1 Month

Irving (ankle) will play in Friday's preseason game against the Mavericks, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

Irving sprained his right ankle in practice a little over a week ago, and just started practicing again later this week. Head coach David Blatt would not let Irving play in a preseason game until he practiced, but after a couple days of practice the superstar guard looks ready to go.

Irving (ankle) took part in pregame drills Wednesday but ended up getting a DNP.

Cavs coach David Blatt said Irving would need to practice before he'd suit up in a game, as he was true to his word on Wednesday. Assuming he makes it through Thursday's practice unscathed, look for the point guard to see the court Friday against the Mavericks.

Irving (ankle) won't play in Tuesday's showdown with the Bucks, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports.

This comes as no surprise, as coach David Blatt said he'd like Irving to practice before returning to game action. With the Cavs beginning a back-to-back set, Irving could also sit out Wednesday's contest, as he won't be able to practice until Thursday. The Cavs will also be without LeBron James (rest) on Tuesday, and Tristan Thompson (shoulder) is a game-time call.

Irving (ankle) is expected to return to practice before playing in a preseason game, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Irving, who was at practice Monday but did not fully participate, is likely out for Tuesday's matchup with the Bucks, as well as Wednesday's game against Indiana. Barring a setback, he should return to practice later this week before potentially playing Friday versus Dallas. After the Dallas game, Cleveland hosts the Bulls on Monday (Oct. 20) and wraps up the preseason that following Wednesday (Oct. 22) in Memphis.

Irving (sprained right ankle) will not play Saturday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

Irving has stressed that the ankle sprain is not serious, despite the fact that he's been using a walking boot in Brazil. Look for him to get into preseason action in the near future, and he should be ready to go for the start of the regular season.

Irving (ankle) sat out most of Thursday's practice and seems unlikely to play in Saturday's preseason game versus the Heat, ESPN reports.

Irving suffered a sprained right ankle after colliding with teammate Anderson Varejao during practice Tuesday. That incident resulted in Irving being sent for X-rays and an MRI, both of which fortunately revealed no damage. While Irving was seen wearing a walking boot Wednesday, he has since shed that appendage. Although he's still listed as day-to-day, it's likely that Irving will spend Saturday's exhibition outing resting his ankle on the Cavaliers' bench.

Irving (ankle) has shed his walking boot, Ethan Skolnick of Turner Sports reports.

Irving was spotted in a boot Wednesday after suffering a right ankle injury during practice. While that may have alarmed some Cavs fans, it appears Irving will be just fine, as he's already ditched the boot one day later. Irving will not practice Thursday in Brazil, and his status is up in the air for Saturday's matchup with the Heat.

Irving sprained his right ankle in practice, but says it's not serious, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

He was spotted wearing a walking boot in Rio De Janeiro, but this should somewhat alleviate initial concerns from owners. It seems unlikely that he would play in Saturday's preseason game against the Heat, and this is still something owners will need to monitor in the coming weeks.

Irving was seen with a walking boot on his right foot, ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports.

The Cavs are in Rio De Janeiro with an exhibition scheduled against the Heat in Brazil on Saturday, so we should learn more of Irving's condition as that game draws closer. It is worth approaching Irving cautiously if you are drafting in the coming days, as it's not clear what kind of injury the Cavs' starting point guard is dealing with.

Irving (hip) will be available for Saturday's FIBA World Cup game against Mexico after coach Mike Krzyzewski deemed him "100 percent" on Friday, ESPN reports.

Irving incurred a hard fall during the closing seconds of Thursday's game against Ukraine. He had to be helped to the locker room but apparently the injury isn't a long-term issue and his availability for the rest of the World Cup is not in question, much less the start of the NBA season.
