Kyrie Irving out until January?

The Cavaliers plan to work Kyrie Irving back into playing condition carefully and methodically as he recovers from a left kneecap fracture suffered in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. 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.

With Irving’s status in doubt for the first couple of months of the season, the Mo Williams acquisition was a tremendous pickup by the Cavs this off-season. The move shored up the team’s point-guard rotation, and when Irving does return, he will be an offensive threat regardless of which player is on the floor. Having two point guards who can score is a luxury not too many teams possess. Irving is attacking his rehab, we’re told, and everyone is optimistic that once he takes the court, he’ll be back to eluding defenders with his crafty dribbling.

LeBron James told Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love via Instagram early Monday morning that “I can’t wait to get back on the floor again with you two guys,” assuring them that the Cavs’ dominant run through the second half of last season was “was just a sample size of what we’re capable of.” “I’m so hyped thinking about what’s next,” James posted to his social media account at 1:30 a.m. Cleveland’s superstar has 12.4 million followers on Instagram.
