Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving will make his season debut on Sunday against Philadelphia, his first game since breaking his left kneecap in the NBA Finals.

Irving posted "I'm back" on his Twitter account Saturday and later said following the team's practice that he's excited to play. Irving hasn't been on the floor since getting hurt in Game 1 of the Finals against Golden State.

The 23-year-old has gone through extensive rehab over the past six months. He said he wouldn't wish his injury on anyone.

The Cavs and Irving have exercised patience during his long recovery. He had been expected to make his return earlier this week, but Irving said there were still some medical hurdles to overcome.

Irving said his minutes will be restricted and he'll ease his way back before his playing time increases in the coming weeks.
