Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has left the Cavs' game tonight vs. the Detroit Pistons with what the team is calling right hip tightness. He will not return.
Kyrie has been holding his right hip the last several possessions and moving with a bit of a limp. Would be surprised to see him 2nd half— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) April 14, 2015

Matthew Dellavedova starts for Kyrie Irving in the second half.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) April 14, 2015
At the half, Irving had 12 points on 5-7 shooting, three assists and three rebounds in 17 minutes of action. If this is anything concerning, this could be the last time we see Irving play before the playoffs. The Cavs next play Wednesday against the Washington Wizards.
