Last night Kyrie Irving had to leave the game against the Toronto Raptors after picking up a shoulder injury. ESPN now confirmed that the young point guard will be out of action for three to four weeks, due to an “AC (acromioclavicular) sprain”.
With only 19 games left in the season, the All-Star point guard might have seen the last of his 2012-13 campaign. Irving has suffered through a knee injury, as well as the flu, in the last couple of weeks.
This injury definitely raises more awareness on Kyrie’s health. He has been injury prone this season, and everyone who enjoys watching the quickest handles in the NBA is concerned. We wish Irving a speedy recovery.
On a more positive note, this will surely bring down the Cavaliers even lower in the conference standings, as they will look to land a nice lottery pick for this year’s draft.
