 Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving spoke to the media on Wednesday. 

Irving left the Sunday game against the Dallas Mavericks with a lower back injury. He will play Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets. Irving talked about how the couple days off helped and he praised the Cavaliers training staff saying, "We have one of the best training staff, if not the best training staff."

Irving was also asked about the trade that sent Dion Waiters to the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Cavs received J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from the New York Knicks. 

"We have two new guys and Dion, I haven't had the chance to talk to him but it's just a let down for me in terms of not getting the chance to say goodbye" Irving said, "For us we had a growth period, both of us maturation wise, experience wise, getting better on the floor, working together every single summer. To see one of my brothers go like that you know it's, it's heartfelt , I'll talk to him over the next few days, send him a text and reach out to him, just wish him the best, you know he's truly a talent, truly a tremendous teammate and I'm just happy he's in the situation that he can thrive on, it's just part of the business at this point it's out of our control, I'm happy he's happy and I hope he does well in OKC."
