Kyrie Irving Injury Update: Byron Scott Reports Irving Feeling Good With Eye On Training Camp

Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott reports that point guard Kyrie Irving is recovering well from offseason hand surgery and ready to join his teammates in Cleveland for the start of training camp.

"I told him, ‘I don't think you're gonna be playing (right away),'" Scott said, smiling. "But he said the hand is doing great. It's a lot better than most people probably expected at this point. So you could tell on the phone he's getting anxious and ready to start. That's a good thing."

Irving appears determined to not let his summer setback keep hold up his play or the development of the young Cavaliers team around him. The NBA rookie of the year will be leading a backcourt that may include another rookie, if shooting guard Dion Waiters adjusts to the NBA game like Cleveland expects.
