Kyrie Irving Did Not Travel With Team, Could Be Out 10 Days

Despite playing last night against the Spurs (and I have NO idea why he played), Kyrie Irving was examined at the Cleveland Clinic on Wednesday. After his examination the doctors determined that his shoulder sprain is still bad enough to keep him out of the lineup.

The likely Rookie of the Year did not travel with the Cavaliers for their upcoming 3-game road trip. The trip includes games against the Milwaukee Bucks (tonight) and games against the Toronto Raptors and New Jersey Nets. Common sense would tell you that Kyrie will be out for all three of those games, possibly more.

Kyrie's shoulder is clearly still bothering him and will be out for the foreseeable future. With this development, the Cavaliers 8-game losing streak doesn't look like it will end anytime soon.

With Ky's shoulder being a problem, would you consider just shutting him down for the remainder of the season? I think I might. I'd love for him to be out there, but with the fact that the team is better off losing games for a lottery pick and the risk of re-injury, it might be worth it to just shut him down.
