CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving is expected to play against New York after missing Cleveland's past three games with a hyperextended right knee.
Irving made it through a full practice on Sunday and took part in the Cavs' morning shootaround Monday. Barring any setbacks, Cavs coach Byron Scott said Irving will start against the Knicks. The Cavs rested Irving all last week, holding him out of games against Chicago, Toronto and the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Cavs went 2-1 without Irving, who has missed 14 games in his second NBA season. He banged knees in practice last month with teammate Omri Casspi and played in two road games despite soreness before the team sat him out.
Last year's rookie of the year, Irving is averaging 23.3 points, 5.6 assists and 3.6 rebounds.
