Report: Kyrie Irving Likely Out Until January, Doubtful for Opening Night

We are all very aware of the knee injury that Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving suffered in game one of the 2015 NBA Finals, causing him to miss the rest of the Finals and it looks as though he will be missing a good chunk of the 2015-2016 season, and maybe even the whole season, according to Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

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….

The Cavaliers want to bring him back slowly without risking a setback, with the goal of being at full strength entering the playoffs.

This seems like a good approach to take for the Cavaliers, especially considering they upgraded at the point guard position by bringing Mo Williams back to Cleveland and re-signing Matthew Dellavedova.
