With training camp fast approaching, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reason to be feeling good, literally.

Kyrie Iriving's wrist is healing up well after off-season surgery and he should be good to go for camp.

Irving averaged 18.5 points and 5.4 assists in 51 games for the Cavs in his rookie season.

With another full camp under his belt and a clean bill of health those numbers could easily go up in his sophomore season.

Anderson Varejao who is coming off a season in which he missed 41 games due to a wrist injury of his own is also healthy heading into camp.

Varejao was having a career year at 10.8 points and 11.5 reabounds per game before going down.

Fourth overall pick Dion Waiters also appears to have gotten himself into better shape since playing in the Summer League.

Having Irving and Varejao at full strength along with the addition of Waiters should be a big boost to a Cavs team looking to get back to relevance after last year's 21-45 record.
