Kyrie Irving returns to Cavaliers practice, game-time decision for Wednesday


Kyrie Irving returned to practice with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the first time in two weeks since sustaining a strained biceps tendon.

The Cavs All-Star point guard was able to take some contact on Tuesday and is questionable to return to the lineup for their game against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. A determination on his playing status will be made shortly before the tip as Irving will take part in the pregame shootaround to test out his injury.

He has taken shots in the past few days before games in a sign that his return to the lineup could be coming soon for the Cavs to make their playoff push.

Irving has missed eight games so far with Cleveland going 4-4 without their floor general as they currently sit three games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

His return will not only benefit the Cavs but also his fantasy owners who hope to get him in their lineups for the fantasy playoffs.

Irving is averaging 21.2 points, 6.2 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game.
