Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving will
miss at least three weeks because of a sprained shoulder.
Irving was hurt during Sunday's game against Toronto when he collided with
Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas. X-rays taken Sunday were negative, but an
MRI exam on Monday revealed a left AC (acromioclavicular) sprain.
The Cavaliers said Irving will undergo rest and treatment for the injury. He
could be sidelined for as long as a month.
Irving has already missed 14 games this season because of various ailments. He
missed 11 games between Nov. 21 and Dec. 8 due to a broken finger and sat out
three games between Feb. 26 and March 1 because of a sore right knee.
In 49 games this season, the Duke product has averaged team bests of 23.0
points and 5.7 assists.
