The Cleveland Cavaliers got off to a bad start against the Los Angeles Clippers. And after that, they got some bad news. Kyrie Irving suffered a left bicep injury, went back to the locker room, and will not return.
Kyrie Irving has a left biceps injury, will not return for #Cavs. Uh-oh.— Jason Lloyd (@JasonLloydABJ) March 17, 2014
This is a super bummer because Kyrie has been playing great lately and has done a really nice job staying healthy for most of the season. Without Kyrie, the Cavs will have to rely on Jarrett Jack and Matthew Dellavedova at the point guard position. The Cavs are also still without C.J. Miles, which makes it hard to move Dion Waiters over to the point guard spot.
I'm sure that Kyrie will undergo an MRI in the next few days and we'll learn more. We shall keep you updated as we get more information.
Sources tell Plain Dealer Kyrie Irving's left biceps injury could be bad enough to end season. MRI on Monday in Cleveland— M.S. Boyer/J. Valade (@PDcavsinsider) March 17, 2014
The fast diagnosis and this news point towards at least a partial tear of the muscle. Now we wait for the MRI. -RM
