Kyrie Irving Cleared by Doctors to Start Working Out

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving suffered a fractured left knee cap during game one of the 2015 NBA Finals, and has been un-able to resume basketball activities until now, as doctors have now reportedly cleared Irving to begin working out with him now being off crutches and his knee in the right shape.

Per Chris Fedor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

There was nothing rigorous about this return to the hardwood. Irving spoke Saturday afternoon from Mentor High School, the site of this year’s Kyrie Irving Basketball ProCamp where he and a selection of the area’s top high school and college basketball coaches were leading a camp of 550 kids in grades 1-12. Irving was walking from station to station to monitor the campers without any issues. He even picked up a basketball a few different times and showed off his dazzling handles while leading the dribbling drill.

Following successful surgery, the Cavs put a three to fourth month timetable for his recovery, which should put him on schedule to return for Training Camp at the end of September. Irving, however, isn’t thinking that far ahead.

“I’m honestly not putting a date on anything,” he said. “People are going to put a date regardless. I’m just continuing to be on the journey I’ve been on and that’s continuing to get better every single day and rehabbing my leg.”

Irving averaged 21.7 points, 5.2 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game in 75 regular season games for the Cavaliers during the 2014-2015 season.
