The doctors say that Kyrie Irving can resume playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, after missing three games due to a concussion. Per the Akron Beacon Journal: “Rookie Kyrie Irving has been medically cleared following his concussion and will be in the starting lineup tonight for the Cavs when they host the Indiana Pacers. Irving suffered the concussion Feb. 7 at Miami and missed three games as a result. The Cavs went 1-2 without him. Ramon Sessions will return to a backup role tonight. ‘(Irving) will resume his normal duties,’ Cavs coach Byron Scott said. ‘Once you get the clearance, that means to me that everything is great and he can go out and play like he’s accustomed to playing. To me, it’s no holds barred.’”
