Kyrie Irving (knee, foot) and LeBron James (ankle) plan to play Game 5

5 Comments

Kyrie Irving has been playing through a foot injury, and LeBron James rolled his ankle in Game 4.

Good news and bad news for the Cavaliers – Irving has another injury but both expect to play Game 5.

Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com:

Brian Windhorst of ESPN:

Game 5 is tomorrow, so not a short turnaround from Game 4. But Pau Gasol is also hurt, and Derrick Rose tends to play worse without multiple days of rest.

Both teams have injury concerns. At this point, the minimum postseason break (one day off) probably favors the Cavaliers.

They’ll probably just do what they’ve done throughout the playoffs – ask LeBron to carry them through their difficulties.
