Kyrie Irving returning from concussion
Kyrie Irving has begun the reinstatement process from a concussion he suffered last week, and there is a possibility he could play Wednesday when the Cavaliers host the Indiana Pacers.

Cavs coach Byron Scott said Irving rode a stationary bike Saturday, which is the first step in a complex program the NBA implemented prior to this season. The next step will be for Irving to jog, do some agility work and complete noncontact drills. The final step is a consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, a neurologist at the University of Michigan and the director of the NBAs new concussion program.

Head injuries are tricky, but if there are no setbacks, Irving could be cleared to play against the Pacers.

That would be nice, Scott said with a laugh. I guess thats a possibility. But Im not going to jump the gun until the doctors tell me hes OK and cleared to practice. Then well go from there.

Re: Kyrie Irving returning from concussion
Whatever the case when he comes back I hope he's 100% and it's not a lingering issue. As they said, concussions can be tricky and they effect everyone differently.
