Kyrie Irving Injury: Cavaliers' point guard OUT vs. Chicago Bulls with sore knee

USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers face a difficult opponent in the Chicago Bulls. And now they'll be without their best player.

At this point, I'm going to assume that Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving will never play against each other. The two star point guards have never been healthy at the same time and now both are hurt.

According to the team, second year point guard Kyrie Irving will be out tonight when the Cavaliers play the Chicago Bulls. The injury is classified as a hyperextended/sore right knee. He is listed as day to day and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Toronto Raptors. Shaun Livingston will get the start in his place.

I can now confirm that this is going to be the worst game played on NBATV in the history of forever. Dion Waiters vs. Nate Robinson for ALL OF THE SHOTS.
