Kyrie Irving had another rough shooting performance on Sunday afternoon against the Mavericks, ultimately leaving the game with back issues. The Cavs are concerned enough about it that he won't be traveling with the team to a matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers.

This is pretty frustrating, and I think Irving has been banged up for awhile now. If you'll remember he just recently returned from a knee injury. LeBron James will also stay home instead of traveling to Philly. Kevin Love has been good of late, and will have to continue his run of great play if the Cavs want to win, even against a bad 76ers team. People want to diagnose this team's problems. Injuries to Irving, James, Anderson Varejao, and Shawn Marion seems like a decent place to start.
