Kyrie Irving (knee) and Iman Shumpert (wrist) could return within the next two games according to coach David Blatt.
We called this back in August for Irving’s timetable as he needs a few tune-up games before the Christmas Day clash. Shump is a long shot for any real fantasy value in a crowded rotation and Irving’s return sends shockwaves throughout the rotation, clipping Kevin Love a little bit while knocking J.R. Smith (illness) into near must-drop status. Smith is questionable for Friday’s game after missing Thursday’s practice and not flying to Orlando with the team.
