Analysis: A very positive sign for the star point guard, who's been largely inconsistent since his late-December return from a fractured kneecap.

Dec. 29 9:16 PM PT10:16 PM MT11:16 PM CT12:16 AM ET5:16 GMT13:16 10:16 PM MST12:16 AM EST9:16 UAE06:160:16 ET11:16 PM CT3:16 - Irving scored 22 on Monday.
Analysis: Irving will sit out Tuesday as he works his way back from knee surgery. It will be the third time he will sit out the second of back-to-back games since his return Dec. 20 so don't use him.

Analysis: After months of rehab, Irving was in the starting lineup for Cleveland, which went 17-7 without him. Irving received a rousing ovation from the Quicken Loans Arena crowd when he was introduced before the game and he waved to the crowd.
Sep. 17 1:06 PM PT2:06 PM MT3:06 PM CT4:06 PM ET20:06 GMT4:06 1:06 PM MST3:06 PM EST0:06 UAE (+1)22:0616:06 ET3:06 PM CT19:06 - If Irving knows when he'll be back on the floor with the Cleveland Cavaliers, he's not telling. The All-Star guard will only divulge this: He's getting closer.

The Cavaliers open training camp later this month.
Analysis: Irving says whatever the timeline is, ''it'll be for the betterment of the team and for us to also compete for a world championship.'' Irving averaged 21.7 points and 5.2 assists for Cleveland last season, his first year playing alongside LeBron James.
