Cavs' Irving probable for Monday

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving is expected to return from a three-game absence on Monday when the Cavaliers host the New York Knicks at Quicken Loans Arena.

Irving, who has been sidelined with a hyperextended right knee, is officially listed as probable.

Through 45 games this season, the second-year standout is averaging 23.3 points, 5.6 assists and 3.6 rebounds per contest.

Cleveland guard Dion Waiters and forward-center Tyler Zeller are both dealing with illnesses and are listed as questionable for Monday.
