    Trade away Kyrie Irving?

    Supposedly Irving is coming back and playing on Tuesday. Should owners be thrilled at the early return, or use this as a sell high opportunity? How confident are you that he is not just going to re-injure the hand, or get a separate injury.

    Also, assuming that Cleveland continues to play bad and miss the playoffs... do you expect the team to rest Irving during fantasy playoff time?

    I would target someone like Conley for his steals and assists. I am ignoring points. Already good in threes.

    • Returning from a broken hand is less concerning to me than returning from a knee/ankle-related type injury. Love returned early from a broken hand too, so Love may serve as your reference. Other than low percentages early on, Kyrie should be fine going forward.

      Now, whether he would get a separate injury or get rest during fantasy playoff schedule, that's unrelated to his return from the hand injury here, so I am just as confident in him regarding those issues as I am toward any other players.

    • I think its something to think about. I would be concerned about reinjury too. See how he does Tues then re-evaluate, but if it was me I would probably look ti trade him.
