Found April 17, 2012 on Fox Sports Ohio:
Guard Kyrie Irving wants to get back on the court. He's missed the last 10 games with the injury. Cavs coach Byron Scott said Irving probably won't face the Pistons on Tuesday. He said there's a better chance of Irving playing against Philadelphia on Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena. When the season ends on April 26 at Chicago, Scott will sit down with all the players and go through evaluations on how they can improve and things to work on in the summer. He'll bring in a few players at Cleveland Clinic Courts -- Irving and forward-center Tristan Thompson, among others -- and have actual court work with them. "We don't want that time to be rehab time," Scott said. "Hopefully, we want him on the court working on some of things for next season." Irving is scheduled to play for the Cavs' summer-league team in Las Vegas. The Cavaliers were drilled by the Dwight Howard-less Magic 100-84 on Sunday.

Irving back for tired Cavaliers

Cavaliers rookie guard Kyrie Irving is back in the starting lineup after missing nine straight games with a shoulder injury. Irving hasn't played since April 3 when he re-injured his shoulder. The NBA's presumptive rookie of the year will start Wednesday night as the Cavaliers, playing their seventh game in nine nights, host the Philadelphia 76ers. Cavs coach Byron Scott...

Cavaliers Recall Luke Harangody to Cleveland

The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Wednesday afternoon that they have brought Luke Harangody back up to the big club from the D-League’s Canton Charge. Harangody, who had a huge game filling in for Antawn Jamison in Washington last weekend, was in the middle of helping the Charge in the D-League Playoffs, but will now finish out the season with the Cavaliers. The  6’7″ forward...

Box Score: 76ers 103, Cavaliers 87

That’s more like it. It may seem funny feeling ok about a 16 point loss, but in this game the Cavaliers came out and showed some fight, taking just a 4 point deficit into the locker room at the half. Jrue Holliday went off in the 3rd and the Sixers’ talent overtook the Cavaliers, but the Cavaliers at least played hard in this game and showed some pride and spirit in the way they...

Kyrie Irving Returns as the Cavaliers Drop 15th of Last 18

When Kyrie Irving returned from a stint of missed games due to a concussion, the first hit came with the biggest gasp. Roy Hibbert, seemingly twice the size of the Cavaliers’ rookie point guard, was ready and waiting. Irving took him on, full speed ahead for two points and deep exhale from all of those with vested interest in the player’s well being. Almost two months (to the...

Rest of Cavaliers' season all about next year

CLEVELAND -- Random observations from the Cavaliers' 103-87 loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday at The Q: The Cavs (20-41) have won just three of their past 17 games. Several of the losses have been downright despicable. In Charlotte, these results might not be big deal. But in a sports-starved town like Cleveland, it can hurt. So who and what is to blame? Well, it's only...

Cavaliers Will Try to Lose By Less Than 39 Points at Home Against Philly

I’m furious with the Cleveland Cavaliers (20-40, 13th in the East). And I hate being mad at the Cavaliers. I love this franchise and I can’t wait for the day when they return to the playoffs and give us fun, rewarding, exciting, meaningful basketball to watch. What we got last night was the polar opposite of that. The Cavaliers lost by 39 points to a team that was 22-38 going...

Thank God The Cleveland Cavaliers Are Down To Five Games

The Cleveland Cavaliers looked like a team tonight that has an on-off switch. In the first half of the game the Cavaliers looked as though they could hang with a play off team like the Philadelphia 76ers. Once the second half started the Cavaliers remembered they can play less than acceptable basketball. The Cleveland Cavaliers have to be kidding us, how can a team go from playing...

On Dan Coughlin, JJ Hickson, Lester Hudson and Luke Harangody

Dan Coughlin wrote a blog for Stepien Rules on Friday. I really can't explain how honored I am by that development without sounding real sentimental and dorky, so I'll just say that I remain very grateful for his time on that. When traditional media was the unequivocal king of sports talk in this town, Dan Coughlin was the star of stars. He still is too. Wherever he goes...

Were The Cleveland Cavaliers Better This Season?

The Cleveland Cavaliers are coming to an end of the 2011-2012 season. The Cavaliers have already won one more game than they did last season. The Cavaliers were again effected by injury and saw guys like Anderson Varejao go out for most of the season, Daniel Gibson lost for the rest of the season and a few other nagging injuries. The Cavaliers saw some improvement this season nonetheless...

For Luke Harangody, there's no such thing as a day off

The Cleveland Cavaliers just completed their first, and only, back-to-back-to-back of the season. Three games in as many nights isn't easy for anybody, and due to the lockout shortened season, every NBA team was stuck with one of those this year. Watching guys limp and hobble out of the locker room on Sunday night it certainly looked like they felt it too. They're now back...

Cavaliers-Pistons Preview

While the Cleveland Cavaliers have said they believe Kyrie Irving will play before the season ends, it won't be against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night. Irving, the league's potential Rookie of the Year, has missed the last eight games with a sprained right shoulder. While the Cavaliers have seven games left and are playing mostly for pride, coach Byron Scott said Irving...

Will Cavaliers and Pistons Try To Out-Tank Each Other Tonight?

A couple weeks back, when I first addressed the concept of “tanking” to point out that the Cleveland Cavaliers (20-39, 13th in the East) were entering a stretch of brutal games with key players injured, I wrote that I felt the worst (or best, I guess, depending on your point of view) the Cavaliers could likely finish is 4th worst. The Cavaliers currently sit 5th worst in the...

Cavaliers' Irving sits again, Magic take win

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jameer Nelson scored 21 points and the Orlando Magic clinched a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference with a 100-84 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night. Orlando led from wire-to-wire despite playing without star center Dwight Howard, who has missed the last four games with a herniated disk in his back. The news the Magic made the postseason took...

Irving returns, Cavaliers lose to 76ers

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jrue Holiday made five 3-pointers and scored 19 of his 24 points in the third quarter as the Philadelphia 76ers kept their hold on a playoff spot with a 103-87 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. Holiday dropped four of his 3s during a stunning 24-2 run when the Sixers blew open a tight game. Andre Iguodala added 19 points as Philadelphia snapped...
