A little better than OK, I'd say, depending on what your standards are. There is nothing wrong with Kyrie. Again, he's treating these preseason games as glorified practice, which is what they are.

CJ Miles has looked great in the preseason, btw. Maybe a change of scenery is exactly what the doctor ordered?

Kyrie's assist #'s will go down a bit since Waiters will be on the floor with him a lot and they will no-doubt share ball-handling duties to some extent.

Could be, but I'm banking on minutes played will cancel out any ball-handling duties being shared. One other thing that will hurt his assist numbers more than likely, though, is the loss of Jamison. Sure, he could be a black hole offensively and he was a matador on defense, but the guy can still score. It isn't all that easy to find a guy who can throw up 25-30 points on any given night.

It should be noted that the last full month he played prior to his injury, he was averaging 32+ minutes, 20 points, 6.7 assists, 5 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game.

I believe those numbers are completely in-play for Kyrie this season since he will likely by playing in that 30-35 minute per game range all year.

One last thing... Having Ramon Sessions for over half the year was a nice luxury for the rookie last year and it allowed Byron to monitor Kyrie's minutes very closely, as he had a very capable backup. There is no backup PG like Sessions on this year's roster, so if Waiters takes some of the duties away from Kyrie, it isn't necessarily something new.
