Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has been cleared for “intensive weight-bearing activities,” reports Cleveland.com’s Chris Haynes.

Irving fractured his left knee cap during Game 1 of last season’s NBA Finals. The clearance still does not allow Irving “freedom for on-court work,” according to the report.

Irving’s timetable for recovery was originally three to four months. Haynes reported in August Cleveland may hold Irving out until January.

Irving averaged 21.7 points, 5.2 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game last season. Irving played in 75 games in 2014–15, the most in a single season of his career.

The Cavaliers are currently 8–1 and in first place in the Eastern Conference. Mo Williams has been starting at point guard in Irving’s absence.
