Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving out 7-10 days with sprained shoulder


As if losing 10 of their last 11 was not enough of a tank job, the Cavaliers will be without their soon-to-be Rookie of the Year.

Kyrie Irving will be out 7-10 days with a sprained shoulder, the team announced Wednesday. From the Associated Press.

Irving had returned after missing one game with the injury and played 30 minutes against the Spurs. The team said in a release that the 20-year-old guard worsened his injury after contact and did not accompany the team to Milwaukee for Wednesday night’s game.

I’d say this would have the Cavaliers taking a step back, but there are not many more steps back they can take. The question has become how they do in the lottery and who they can get to pair with Irving.
