Kyrie Irving injury: Cleveland Cavaliers' point guard injures shoulder in loss to Raptors

USA TODAY Sports

Kyrie Irving needs to start drinking more milk. In Cleveland's loss to Toronto on Sunday, the stud point guard had to leave the game and did not return with a shoulder injury.

Kyrie Irving took a hit from Jonas Valanciunas in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Toronto Raptors. He went down and held his left shoulder in pain. He stayed in the game to shoot the free throws, but he did one-handed. After the foul shots, he left the game immediately and went to the locker room with the Cavaliers' trainer.

Irving did not return to the ballgame and was clearly in pain. X-rays were negative and he will be re-evaluated in Cleveland. Here's what he said after the game:

How does your shoulder feel?
"It feels like crap. I have been hit that way a lot of times, but I have never had a feeling like this. It is what it is."

The x-rays were negative, do you find some solace in that?
"It still doesn't feel right, so no solace in that."

That doesn't sound particularly good, so I'd expect for Kyrie to miss some time with this most recent injury. As usual, we'll keep you updated as we hear more news.
