• Irving won’t make comeback Thursday against Thunder


    NEW YORK: Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving said Wednesday on Twitter he will not make his NBA season debut Thursday night in a home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. An ESPN report had said he would make the scene after final approval from doctors following a series of physical tests to measure his body’s response. But Irving, who had surgery last June to repair a broken left kneecap suffered in the opening game of the NBA Finals, nixed that notion quickly. “Sorry to dwindle the news, but I won’t be returning tmrw,” Irving tweeted. “It was wrongfully reported. When I do come back you’ll hear it directly from me.” The Cavaliers also play at home against Philadelphia, which has the NBA’s worst record at 1-25.
