Kyrie Irving is expected to make his return to the Brooklyn Nets lineup Sunday against the Atlanta Hawks, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Six-time NBA All-Star Irving has been benched since mid-November with the injury, but was able to fully take part in team workouts Thursday for the first time in almost two months.

During his 11 games on the court this season, Irving has averaged 28.5 points, 7.2 assists and 5.4 rebounds. He rested over the final 17:54, exiting after the Nets took an 87-50 lead and the outcome was never in doubt.

The Nets defeated the Hawks 108-86. He began to feel pain in early November before first sitting out after a game in Denver on Nov. 14 (Nov. 15, PHL time). The Nets continued to shoot well and held a 70-46 edge by halftime after shooting a blistering 65.8%.

Cam Reddish's 20 points were a team high and it was also the second most points the No. 10 overall pick scored in his rookie season as Reddish scored a career high 25 points against Brooklyn back on December 4.
