Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving is officially listed as ‘probable’ for Monday night’s contest against the New York Knicks. He had missed the previous three games due to a hyperextended right knee. “Based on what I saw in practice, there’s a good chance he’ll play,” coach Byron Scott said from shootaround on Monday morning. “We will see how he feels after really going up and down and going a full scrimmage, and obviously that will determine whether he’s good to go or not. But from what I saw [Sunday], he’s good.” The team has also listed rookies Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller as ‘questionable’ for the game, both players sustaining an illness. On the season, Irving has missed a combined 14 games due to his right knee and a fractured bone in his right index finger. He is averaging 24 points and six assists per game. The Cavaliers have topped the Knicks 10 consecutive times at home. The last time these two teams matched up, Irving scored a career-high 41 points.
