Kyrie Irving begins reinstatement process following concussion

By Jason Lloyd Published: February 11, 2012

Kyrie Irving rode an exercise bike on Saturday, the first step in the process he must take to be cleared following his concussion last week.

Cavs coach Byron Scott said Irving rode the bike, but did nothing else. Now he'll have to jog, do agility work and complete some non-contact drills. The final step is a consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, a neurologist at the University of Michigan and the director of the NBA's new concussion program.

Head injuries are tricky, but if there are no setbacks, Irving could be cleared in time for Wednesday's home game against the Indiana Pacers.

"That would be nice," Scott said with a laugh. "I guess that's a possibility. But I'm not going to jump the gun until the doctors tell me he's OK and cleared to practice. Then we'll go from there."
