Understandably, this is the last thing the Cavaliers wanted to have happen as they try to make one more push towards the playoffs. Not only is Irving their leading scorer, but he’s had a well-chronicled history of injuries dating back to his days as a Duke Blue Devil. Fair or not, if Irving does miss any significant time, it will likely drum up the “Irving is injury prone talks” yet again. However, nothing specific is known about the injury.
As for the game itself, Irving obviously leaves a huge scoring gap. Austin Carr thus asks the important, yet obvious, question.
Who will step up with Kyrie out????
