Cleveland’s rookie guard made it through a complete practice Tuesday and appears poised to return after missing three games with a concussion on Wednesday against Indiana.
“Young fella looked good,” said Ramon Sessions, who has started at the point while Irving recovered. “He’s getting back in the groove. He looked back to normal, and we’re happy to have him back. He’s a key part of this team.”
Irving will be back in Cleveland’s starting lineup as long as he’s cleared by the team’s medical staff, which will consult with an NBA doctor per the league’s new guidelines on head injuries implemented this season.
