Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love was already listed as questionable for tonights game vs. the Miami Heat due to a back injury. Now Kyrie Irving has joined him on the injury list.

Irving is questionable for tonight's game due an undisclosed illness and did not attend today's shootaround. Heat guard Dwyane Wade missed Miami's shootaround due to an illness.

If Irving is unable to play, Matthew Dellavedova likely will get the start at point guard, while Tristan Thompson would likely start at power forward if Love's back keeps him from playing.

Irving is averaging 21.9 points and 5.2 assists per game this season. The Cavs and Heat tipoff tonight at 8 p.m. on TNT.
