Kyrie Irving finished with 21 points, three rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks in a tough loss vs. the visiting Raptors on Saturday.
The Cavs shot 36.0 percent in their lowest-scoring game of the year on Friday, and they were stuck at 43.2 percent tonight, including a 3-of-16 mark from downtown. Cavs coach David Blatt said after the game that he's considering a change to the starting lineup, which would inevitably send either Shawn Marion or Anderson Varejao to the bench. Owners scouring the waiver wire for value should keep a close eye on the Cavs' rotations going forward. Nov 22 - 10:37 PM

Kyrie Irving made 7-of-16 from the field for 22 points against the Wizards on Friday with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and three turnovers in 41 minutes.

It's his second game in a row with two assists while he's also seen his usage take a significant hit. Last year, he had an elite 28.0 usage rate, but this year it's dropped to just 23.8. Thanks to his improved shooting, output in steals and lower turnovers, Irving has still been a first-round guy this season.
Nov 22 - 12:35 AM

Kyrie Irving scored 27 points on 8-of-16 shooting (3-of-7 from deep, 8-of-9 from the line) with four rebounds, five assists, three steals and one block in Friday's win.

This big line pushed him closer to within a stone's throw of his mid-second round ADP and owners have to be thrilled that nothing disastrous has happened so far playing next to LeBron and Kevin Love.
Nov 14 - 11:30 PM

Following the Cav's 118-111 win over the Pelicans on Monday, Kyrie Irving said the Cavs are finally starting to play together as a team.

Irving scored 32 points to go with five rebounds, nine assists, and four three-pointers during the win and spoke of the team's blossoming chemistry after the game. "This game was special because it was the first game we actually played well together as a group," Irving said. The Cavs still have some building to do, but the fact that Irving and LeBron James were able to co-exist on Monday night is a great sign for fantasy owners.
Nov 11 - 9:52 AM

Kyrie Irving scored 32 points on 11-of-21 shooting (4-of-7 from deep, 6-of-7 from the line) with five rebounds and nine assists in Monday's win over the Pelicans.

Irving is still hucking up bad shots but the fact he and LeBron (32 points, 12 boards, 10 assists) went off on the same night (and won) will keep detractors off their tails. Look for their chemistry to be a storyline anytime the Cavs start to lose games.
Nov 10 - 9:44 PM

Kyrie Irving followed up his zero-assist night from Wednesday with six assists on Friday, and also added 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds and no steals or blocks.

Irving looked like he got the message at least a little bit, but he did miss a wide open LeBron James with the game sort-of hanging in the balance. His so-called rift with LeBron was refuted by Chris Broussard during the game, and while we're taking that report with a grain of salt we're taking the whole thing with a grain of salt. They'll all eventually gel and this storyline will fade from memory, and if it somehow doesn't it'll be guys like Irving and Dion Waiters that get shown the door.
Nov 8 - 4:15 AM

LeBron James challenged Kyrie Irving to be a better playmaker following the Cavs' blowout loss to the Trail Blazers.

Kyrie put up 34 points on 12-of-23 shooting during the Cavs' last outing vs. Utah, but failed to record a single assist over 45 minutes of action. LeBron said that he would let Kyrie be one of the dominant ball-handlers during the offseason, but that means distributing, and not just scoring. Through the first four games of the season Kyrie is averaging a meager 3.8 assists, but with a career-average of 5.8 assists per game, that number has to eventually go up.
Nov 7 - 9:38 AM

Kyrie Irving hit 12-of-23 shots and two 3-pointers for a season-high 34 points, but didn't have an assist and added just one rebound and two steals in 45 minutes.

The Cavaliers had a total of six assists as a team, which is laughable considering they have LeBron James and Irving on this team. They'll get it figured out, and assists or not, Irving provided some nice value tonight. At least, much more than he did in his previous game, when he had just nine points and five assists.
Nov 6 - 1:15 AM

Kyrie Irving struggled in every aspect of the game vs. Portland on Tuesday, scoring nine points on 3-of-17 shooting while allowing Damian Lillard to score 27 efficient points.

Irving hit one 3-pointer and chipped in five assists, one steal and only one turnover in 37 minutes of action, so it wasn't all bad. He's also 3-of-14 from downtown through three games, despite shooting 37.7 percent from deep for his career, and this might be one of the best 'buy low' chances owners will get for a long time.
Nov 5 - 12:49 AM

Kyrie Irving scored 23 points on 6-of-17 from the field and 10-of-10 from the line against the Bulls on Friday with one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He shot just 36.0 percent from the field in his four games against the Bulls last season, so this line is not a surprise. Irving will get a favorable matchup against Damian Lillard on Tuesday and it's a plus to see that he's still getting shots in the teens. He's still not going to be the same player as he was last season from a fantasy perspective.
Oct 31 - 11:22 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 22 points with five rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

He looked great in the third quarter and finished with seven points in the fourth. Irving is coming into the season with some momentum and started hot, but he'll have some bad games mixed in there. He's still going to be a No. 1 fantasy point guard.
Oct 31 - 12:21 AM

Kyrie Irving hit 7-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 16 points, one rebound, three assists, a steal and a block on Wednesday.

LeBron James got the night off so Irving was allowed to have the ball in his hands more than he usually will. He's still a top point guard option, but it's hard to see him putting up massive numbers when Kevin Love and LeBron are going to have the ball on most trips down the court.
Oct 22 - 10:56 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 28 points on 10-of-19 shooting (1-of-3 from deep, 7-of-8 from the line) with three rebounds, seven assists and two steals over 39 minutes in Monday's exhibition win over the Bulls.

Irving looked great while LeBron (18 points, seven boards, six assists, one steal, one block) was a bit passive and Kevin Love (nine points, 2-of-10 FGs, 13 boards) had plenty of rust. He was also getting torched by Derrick Rose on the other end, which probably contributed to his motivation to get it back on the other end. In any event, his ankle issue is a non-issue and he's ready to be drafted in the second round.
Oct 20 - 10:38 PM

Kyrie Irving returned from an ankle injury in the Cavs' 108-102 preseason loss to the Mavs on Friday, scoring 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks.

Irving did his damage in just 29 minutes and hit all four of his free throws and only had two turnovers for good measure. If you had dropped him on your cheat sheet at all due to this injury, it's time to pump him back up into the second round.
Oct 17 - 11:52 PM

Kyrie Irving (ankle) is "raring to go" for Friday night, according to coach David Blatt.

He's missed the last three preseason games due to his sprained ankle, but it was never considered serious. Irving has been a little injury prone and he's going to see his usage rate go south, so he's not a great target in the top 20 picks of standard drafts.
