The Cavaliers have already lost one member of their team for the playoffs due to a shoulder injury in Kevin Love, and now Kyrie Irving could be out for some time according to multiple sources.
Per USA Today Sports:
Kyrie Irving scored just 11 points on 3-for-13 shooting, and it was revealed after the game that Irving is playing with what the team calls a strained right foot, an injury Irving said he noticed in Game 2 of Cleveland’s first-round series against the Boston Celtics.
Irving underwent tests within the past week.
“I have been trying to get treatment since then,” Irving said. “I just have to stay ready to play. There are no excuses. And I have to play through it. … Tonight, I’m not hanging my head nor using a bad foot as an excuse.”
While Irving’s foot isn’t going to make him miss any time as of right now, the injury could overwhelm the Cavaliers team with very weak depth at the point guard position behind Kyrie.
