The timetable for the return of Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving may be extended and he likely won't be practicing in contact drills for a couple of weeks, coach Byron Scott told the News-Herald:

"I know he's anxious," Scott said. "We're not going to take any chances. We'll leave it up to the doctors. He has to get at least one practice in. The chance of him coming back early, I don't know."
Irving suffered a hairline fracture in his left index finger on Nov. 17 in a loss to the Mavs. Doctors estimated that he would miss four weeks. Irving was averaging 22.9 points and 5.6 assists per game prior to the injury. The team is 2-6 since he's been out of the lineup.
