The Cavs are facing a bit of an injury situation right now. Jason Lloyd is reporting that Kyrie Irving will probably miss the next two preseason games before returning from his ankle injury while LeBron James will be missing one of the next three preseason games to rest. LeBron has a sore back.
“Kyrie moved around a good bit today, not in live practice, but in terms of the drills that we had. That’s a good sign,” Cavs coach David Blatt said. “He’s coming along. We’re not going to rush it, we’re being careful because we want him back on his feet full strength. But he did take a step forward today, no question.”
“I haven’t quite figured it out,” James said of which game he would skip. “I’m going to talk with coach and go from there. They’ve been managing it pretty good. I’m feeling pretty good right now and I want to continue that.”
