CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving will start Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals after missing two games with a sore left knee.

Irving sat out Cleveland’s wins in Game 2 and 3 with tendinitis. He tested the knee during the morning shootaround and again before tip-off. The Cavs announced he would play about 30 minutes before the start.

The Cavs said Irving, who is now wearing a brace, will be monitored during the game. The Cavs have a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

In the opener, Irving scored 10 points and had six assists in 27 minutes. He only played 12 minutes in the Cavs’ series-clinching win in Chicago on May 14. He tweaked his knee in that game.

Irving has also been slowed by a sprained right foot sustained in the opening round against Boston.
