CLEVELAND, OH - Kyrie Irving returned to Cavaliers practice on Sunday and says he hopes to be ready to play in the season opener on Tuesday.
Irving had all four wisdom teeth extracted on Wednesday and has been bed-ridden for the last few days. Irving said he has lost about 5 pounds.
The team beleives Irving will be ready for the opener and will most likely clear him to play against the Washington Wizards at "The Q" on Tuesday.

Will Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters, Tyler Zeller and this June’s number one and 19th picks take the team to places that LeBron James used to?
The Cleveland Cavaliers are on top of the NBA draft yet again, only this time there is no LeBron James waiting to save them. There may not even be a Kyrie Irving.
