Cavs News: Kyrie Irving Increasing Workload, But Still No Timetable for Return
- Updated: November 1, 2015
Cavs head coach David Blatt announced recently that Irving is “ramping up” his workload, but is still following protocol and doesn’t have a timetable yet to return.
With fellow guard Iman Shumpert also out for at least three months due to wrist surgery in the offseason, the health of Cleveland’s backcourt is shaky at best.
On the bright side, backup point guards Mo Williams and Matthew Dellavedova have been thriving in the backcourt in the absence of Irving as they have combined averages of 19.0 points and 10.7 assists through three games.
As Dave McMenamin of ESPN put it:
“We have depth. And if it’s one position we have it, it’s at the guard spot. Bringing back Delly [Matthew Dellavedova], re-signing J.R., bringing in Richard, bringing in Mo, we have depth at the guard spot, so with this injury, guys should be able to step in.”
Look for both Williams and Dellavedova and even LeBron James to continue to fill in on their extra point guard duties with Irving recovering from his injury.
