Report: Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love to Be Limited in Training Camp

by September 22, 2015

The Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly expect Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Timofey Mozgov and Anderson Varejao to be participants during training camp starting next week.

Irving recently said that he’s “feeling great” following left knee surgery; Love anticipated being “a month and a half away” two weeks ago.

All four players are recovering from surgery.

Per the NEOMG:

Irving (fractured knee cap) and Love (separated shoulder) will be active during camp, but on a limited basis. The Cavaliers will work the two in slowly and cautiously. The anticipation is that Love will be fully cleared with no limitations before Irving is given the green light, I’m told.


So far, Love’s workload on the court consists of non-contact drills; while Irving has been coy about what he has been doing.


… Mozgov (knee scope) and Varejao (Achilles’ tendon tear) are not expected to be restricted once camp opens, but the team will closely monitor their involvement. […] Mozgov did not play for the Russian National Team this summer, and that helped speed his rehabilitation progress. Also, I’m informed Varejao has been jumping and dunking on the leg that gave out on him last December.
