This past Tuesday, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving injured his knee. It was speculated by some to be a bruised knee, and MRIs revealed there was no serious damage. However, Irving hasn’t played since the game he injured his knee in. He’s missed two straight for the Cavaliers. It looks like that number will move to three now, as reports have stated he will miss the team’s game on Sunday against the Indiana Pacers.
From CBS Sports,
The Cavaliers aren’t worried about rushing him back any time soon and just want him to be completely healthy before he gets back on the court.
The Cavs have gone 1-1 in the two games that Irving sat out during this stretch. They beat the Magic 87-81 on Thursday before losing to the Nets 89-82 Saturday night. The Cavs don’t play again until Tuesday after today’s division game against the Pacers. They’ll play the 76ers before heading to Utah for Friday.
After today’s game, the guard has some time to rest and recover his “knee bruise” for a couple days, as the next game for the Cavs is going to be on Tuesday.
The Cavaliers are currently 11-22 on the season, and sit in 12th place in the Eastern Conference.
