Kyrie Irving is as talented as they come, but he’s equally as injury-prone. When healthy, you can’t deny his talent, but in his brief career, he’s always had to deal with a physical setback.
The most recent one, of course, came in the Finals by way of a fractured knee cap and he’s actually not expected back until January.
Multiple league sources say his rehabilitation is going smoothly, but that the chances are slim of him being in the opening-night lineup against the Chicago Bulls on Oct. 27. One source said he could very well be unavailable up until January….
The Cavaliers want to bring him back slowly without risking a setback, with the goal of being at full strength entering the playoffs.
