After tendinitis in his left knee and right foot strain kept him sidelined for the entire second half of the Cavs’ win over Chicago five days ago, Irving sat out of his team’s Saturday practice. But Monday, Irving was back in practice and showing significant improvement.
“I’m going to go,” Irving said of Game 1 to take place in Atlanta.
Irving said preparing with his teammates and “being able to actually feel both my feet underneath me,” has been a boost to his spirit and mental confidence.
“I think that’s the biggest thing I get out of it. I don’t want to be on the sideline at all, especially preparing for a big stage like this,” he said, according to ESPN. “I want to be as close to 100 percent before Wednesday as I can be, so just doing the necessary things in order to do that.”
