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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
