Good news for the Cleveland Cavaliers today, as it appears that Kyrie Irving will return to action tonight. Irving has missed the last three games after suffering a hyperextension of his knee. According to the New York Time’s Howard Beck, however, he should be able to go tonight against the New York Knicks.


The Cavs aren’t making a playoff push or anything, but it’s always nice to have the team’s best player back in action, especially for the fans. Tonight is also Kyrie Irving bobble head night in Cleveland, which would have been a bit weird with Irving sitting on the bench.
