Active Illness Open link
Irving will start on Wednesday vs. the Jazz, as expected. He was considered probable heading in and was never in any real danger of missing time even though he missed shootaround due to illness.

Probable Illness Open link
Irving missed shootaround due to illness, but is still expected to play on Wednesday vs. the Jazz. We'll continue to update his status as needed, but this doesn't look like it will cost him any time.
1/7/2015 10:05 AM
Active Sore lower back Open link
Irving will return to the lineup on Wednesday vs. the Rockets after missing Monday's game due to a sore lower back. He said after morning shootaround that his back "feels great," and he's not expected to have any limitations. Irving first tweaked his back during a fall in the second half of Friday's win, and was then limited to a relatively ineffective 25 minutes before being shut down during the second half of Sunday's loss. "It was tight in the fourth quarter of the Charlotte game, then I fell on it, which made it 10 times worse," he said. "It’s just painful right now, but we just have to get through it." Irving's return will take back minutes from Matthew Dellavedova and AJ Price in the backcourt.

Out Sore lower back Open link
Irving won't travel with the Cavs for Monday's game vs. the 76ers, and will instead remain in Cleveland to receive treatment for his sore lower back. He first tweaked his back during a fall in the second half of Friday's win, and was then limited to a relatively ineffective 25 minutes before being shut down during the second half of Sunday's loss. "It was tight in the fourth quarter of the Charlotte game, then I fell on it, which made it 10 times worse," said Irving. "It’s just painful right now, but we just have to get through it." Coach David Blatt said that he's not concerned about Irving's back being a long-term issue, but added, "Certainly in the short-term it's a worry." We'll look for further updates on Irving's status in advance of Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets, and it will be Dion Waiters, Matthew Dellavedova, and AJ Price to see the minutes at point guard while Irving is sidelined.

Active Left knee bone bruise Open link
Irving will return to the lineup and play on Tuesday vs. the Hawks, as expected. He has missed the past two games with what has been termed a left knee contusion, though he clarified on Monday that he's actually been dealing with a bone bruise. Irving initially suffered the injury back on Dec. 11, then aggravated it on Christmas Day. It was never considered serious, but the team decided to hold him out as Irving was still experiencing some soreness. Irving's return will move Matthew Dellavedova back to a more limited reserve role and cut into the minutes of Dion Waiters and Mike Miller.

Probable Left knee bone bruise Open link
Irving practiced on Monday and is expected to return to the lineup for Tuesday's contest vs. the Hawks. He has missed the past two games with what has been termed a left knee contusion, though Irving clarified on Monday that he actually has a bone bruise. He initially suffered the injury back on Dec. 11 then aggravated it on Christmas Day. It was never considered serious, but the team decided to hold him out as Irving was still experiencing some soreness. His return will move Matthew Dellavedova back to a more limited reserve role and cut into the minutes of Dion Waiters and Mike Miller.
12/28/2014 1:50 PM
Out Left knee contusion Open link
Irving has been ruled out for a second straight game on Sunday due to his left knee contusion. Coach David Blatt said he's still dealing with some soreness, although it's not considered serious and the hope is that he'll be back in the lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks. Irving first suffered the injury in a game vs. the Thunder on Dec. 11 and aggravated it in the waning minutes of the Christmas Day game vs. the Heat. Matthew Dellavedova will draw another start at the point in his place on Sunday, with Dion Waiters and Mike Miller also seeing additional run at guard in his absence.
12/26/2014 5:14 PM
Out Left knee contusion Open link
Updating a previous report, Irving has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Magic due to a left knee contusion. He tested his knee out during pregame warmups and was still experiencing issues with it so he decided to sit this one out. Irving suffered the contusion in the waning moments of Thursday's loss while attempting to score on a drive to the basket. Matthew Dellavedova will start at the point in his place, with Dion Waiters seeing additional run off the bench. Teammate LeBron James will play after dealing with some left leg tightness.
12/26/2014 4:37 PM
Active Left knee contusion Open link
Irving and teammate LeBron James will both play on Friday vs. the Magic. Irving was being treated for a left knee contusion, which he suffered in the waning moments of Thursday's loss while attempting to score on a drive to the basket. James has been dealing with left leg tightness, and headed to the locker room briefly on Thursday because of it before returning in the fourth quarter. Neither appears to be limited moving forward and should be good to go.
12/25/2014 7:14 PM
Questionable Left knee contusion Open link
Irving is being treated for what the Cavs are calling a left knee contusion after Thursday's game. He suffered the injury in the waning moments of the loss to the Heat while attempting to score on a drive to the basket, as he landed awkwardly after Dwyane Wade stepped on his foot. The team says that no MRI is necessary, which is a good sign, but he's expected to be evaluated further before his status for Friday's game vs. the Magic is established. We'll call him questionable for now, and it will be Matthew Dellavedova and Dion Waiters to see the minutes at point guard if this were to cost Irving any time.
12/12/2014 2:56 PM
Active Left knee contusion Open link
Irving is not listed on the Cavs' Friday injury report and will be in the Cavs' starting lineup vs. the Pelicans on Friday. He had an injury scare with his left knee late in the first half of Thursday's loss to the Thunder after bumping knees with Russell Westbrook and having it buckle under him. Irving received good news after being evaluated at halftime, however, and was diagnosed with a contusion. He started the second half and played the rest of the way without issue, and said after the game that he expected to play Friday, although he thought the knee might stiffen up a bit. There have been no early indications that Irving will have any limitations during Friday's game.
12/11/2014 10:55 PM
Questionable Left knee contusion Open link
Irving said his left knee will definitely stiffen up on him overnight, but he still expects to play on Friday vs. the Pelicans. He had an injury scare with his knee late in the first half of Thursday's loss after bumping knees with Russell Westbrook and having it buckle under him. Irving received good news at halftime after being evaluated and was diagnosed with a contusion. He started the second half and played the rest of the way without issue. We'll continue to monitor his status and provide updates as it's certainly possible he has to sit out on Friday. Matthew Dellavedova and Dion Waiters would see extended run at the point should that be the case.
12/11/2014 8:15 PM
Active Left knee Open link
Irving will start the second half of Thursday's game vs. the Thunder after an earlier scare with his left knee. He was diagnosed with just a contusion, and looks to be fine. Irving was helped to the locker room late in the second quarter after bumping knees with Russell Westbrook on his way down after contesting Westbrook's shot. His knee appeared to buckle, and he was down on the court afterwards in apparent pain which caused obvious concern. We'll continue to monitor his status.
10/17/2014 10:44 AM
Probable Sprained right ankle Open link
Irving will return to preseason game action on Friday after missing the past three exhibitions due to a right ankle sprain. This wasn't considered a major concern despite his being held out for a week, with the team exercising complete caution. Coach David Blatt said that Irving is "raring to go" for Friday's contest. Elsewhere for the Cavs, Kevin Love and Shawn Marion will be held out of Friday's action for the purposes of "rest and maintenance."
10/13/2014 2:08 PM
Questionable Sprained right ankle Open link
Coach David Blatt says Irving "moved around quite a bit" at practice on Monday and participated in non-contact drills, but the team is "not going to rush it." He is likely to miss the Cavs' upcoming preseason back-to-back on Tuesday and Wednesday, but Blatt hopes he will be able to return for Friday's exhibition. Irving has been dealing with a sprained right ankle injury that he suffered last Tuesday. "It's about the bigger picture," Irving said. "If this were a regular-season game, I'm pretty sure I would play. It's the preseason, there's no reason to chance it." Expect the Cavs to continue to exercise as much caution with him as is needed. Irving will continue treatment in the interim, and his availability for the season opener shouldn't be in doubt at this point.
10/10/2014 12:32 PM
Questionable Sprained right ankle Open link
Irving will not play in Saturday's preseason game vs. the Heat due to a sprained right ankle that he suffered on Tuesday. He sat out Thursday's practice, though he said his ankle is feeling better and that he's been out of his walking boot since Wednesday night. "It's about the bigger picture," Irving said. "If this were a regular-season game, I'm pretty sure I would play. It's the preseason, there's no reason to chance it." Expect the Cavs to continue to exercise as much caution with him as is needed. Irving will continue treatment in the interim, and his availability for the season opener shouldn't be in doubt at this point.

Questionable Sprained right ankle Open link
Irving will not participate in the Cavs' Thursday practice, although he said his ankle is feeling better and has been out of his walking boot since Wednesday night. Irving did participate in an NBA Cares event prior to the team practice, but the Cavs will exercise as much caution with him as is needed. He remains questionable for Saturday's exhibition, and his availability for Friday practice should let us know his status. Irving said he's not sure if he'll be able to play as of yet, and will continue treatment in the interim.
10/8/2014 12:21 PM
Questionable Right foot/ankle Open link
Although details aren't completely clear, it's being reported that Irving suffered an injury to his right foot or ankle in Tuesday practice. X-rays and an MRI were all clear, and he traveled with the team to Brazil, but he was seen in a walking boot while sightseeing on Wednesday. This doesn't appear to be serious as of now, but he's questionable for Saturday's exhibition and his status will continue to be monitored over the next few days.
