In a Cavaliers season full of lows, another well may be on its way. According to the Plain Dealer, star point guard Kyrie Irving may be out out for the season with a left bicep injury. Irving sustained the injury in the second quarter of the Cavaliers 102-80 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.
The Cavaliers are currently 26-41 and just 4.5 games out of the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot. But an injury to Irving would likely end any hope of a playoff appearance. For the season, Irving is averaging 21.5 points and 6.3 assists. He has also missed only three games this season.
Last season, Irving missed a total of 23 games due to variety of injuries. In his rookie season (which was shorted by the lockout) Irving missed 13 games with a concussion and a shoulder injury. Irving also only played 11 games at Duke due to a toe injury.
Irving was set to have an MRI on Monday, but the results have not yet been released. Stay tuned to RightDownEuclid.com for more info on Irving as it comes out. You can view the video of the play where Irving injured himself below.
