• Cavaliers' Irving out month with broken finger

    Summary of 6 articles · Updated Nov 20, 2012
    The Cavaliers announced Monday that Kyrie Irving will miss four weeks with a hairline fracture in his left index finger. Irving, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 Draft, missed 15 games for the Cavaliers last season and sat out for an extended period of time due to a concussion. Of course, a day later, we know that Irving will miss up to a month with a fracture in his left hand. And while youngsters like Tristan Thompson, Tyler Zeller and Dion Waiters have had their fair share of ups and downs during the lockout year and this season's first month, star guard Kyrie Irving is helping the Cavaliers lead the league in drools per minute with his All-Star level play. Irving later reported that he somehow caught his left hand on Mavericks guard Darren Collison’s foot, and that the injury affected how he performed in the fourth quarter when he had 10 of his game-high 26 points, but when the Mavericks sank 59 percent of their field goals and outscored Cleveland. Though the second-year guard was seen shooting around at practice on Tuesday while wearing a split on his injured hand, the team is likely to take its time as it works its future franchise stud back into the lineup.
