All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving will miss three to four weeks with a sprained left shoulder after Cavaliers practice on Monday at Cleveland Clinic Courts.

Irving suffered a sprained AC (acromioclavicular) when he took a hip check from rookie Jonas Valanciunas with 2:04 left in the third quarter on Sunday in Toronto. X-rays taken in Toronto were negative, but Irving, who had to have help putting a sweatshirt over his head in Toronto after the game, was to have more tests today in Cleveland.

Irving, who broke a bone in his right hand during summer league, has missed 14 games this season, 11 with a fractured left index finger from Nov. 21 to Dec. 8 and three with a sore/hyperextended right knee from Feb. 26 to March 1. He did play through a fractured in his jaw bone in mid-December. He missed 14 games with injuries last season, 10 with a sprained right shoulder, 3 with a concussion and 1 when he was ill. He also sat out the last game of the season.

Irving, who played just 11 games in his only season at Duke because of a toe injury, has missed 29 of 129 games with the Cavs, who are 8-21 without him, including 4-10 this season.


Talented but injury prone

Stay healthy kid. It isn't worth rushing back from all these injuries.

I'm starting to get really concerned with Kyrie.

He should slow down and rest more because he seems like he's been quiet injury prone early in his career.


Hope its not to serious cause this young blood can ball!

He needs to slow down. Don't want what happened to Derrick Rose to happen to him.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
