Update: Kyrie Irving says he’s not playing Thursday
As it turns out, Kyrie Irving’s return will have to wait a little longer. This morning, a report indicated that he was set to return for Thursday night’s game against Oklahoma City, playing for the first time since his knee injury in Game 1 of the Finals last June.
Not so, according to Irving.
So, that’s out. Hopefully he’ll return before the Christmas Day game against the Warriors, but it won’t be Thursday.
