Cavs' Irving cleared to return

Cleveland Cavaliers rookie point guard Kyrie Irving was cleared to return to action.

Cavs team physician Dr. A.J. Cianflocco gave the first-overall pick the go- ahead on Wednesday, hours before Cleveland will host the Indiana Pacers.

Irving has missed the last three games after suffering a concussion during a February 7 game at Miami when he was kneed in the head.

In 23 games this season, Irving has averaged 18.0 points, 5.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds.
