On Friday, Darius Garland of the Cleveland Cavaliers was celebrating a very special day.
And in the near future, he might be celebrating a very special return to the court.
Garland posted two praying hand emojis on Twitter Friday morning, leaving some fans to question what his cryptic post meant.
Certain people thought Garland was commemorating his birthday, which happens to be Friday, while others thought that perhaps this was a message that he was about to return to the team.

Garland turned 24 years old on Friday and there were many fans who came out to support and praise him on his big day.
However, questions swirled about when Garland would join his team again.
Garland was recently cleared to resume some on-court activities after being out of the rotation for the past month because of a broken jaw.
Back in the middle of January, Garland had the wiring in his mouth removed, which was a big step in his recovery and a sign that he should be back with the Cavaliers soon.
Garland broke his jaw in December when he ran straight into Boston Celtics star Kristaps Porzingis.
When he left the team, some people thought the season was all but over for the Cavaliers because of everything Garland does.
He is averaging 20.7 points and 5.9 assists so far this season.
Despite the loss of Garland and big man Evan Mobley, the Cavaliers have been terrific lately and are currently the fifth team in the East.
They recently concluded an eight-game winning streak, proving to everyone that they are capable of great things even when two of their biggest stars are missing.
Garland is clearly in good spirits but is it because he’s celebrating his birthday or planning his re-entry into the league?
