Default Kyrie Irving suffers shoulder injury, out 3-4 weeks

Even before he was injured Sunday at Toronto, Kyrie Irving and Cavaliers coach Byron Scott made it a goal for Irving to really devote his summer to the weight room in an effort to get stronger. His latest injury once again illustrates why.

Irving is expected to miss 3 to 4 weeks and could miss the rest of the season with an AC sprain in his left shoulder suffered in Sunday. Since there are just 5˝ weeks left in the season, there remains the possibility Irving’s season will again be cut short by a significant injury.

Irving was injured in the third quarter Sunday when he crashed into Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas while driving to the basket. He stayed in the game long enough to shoot two one-handed free throws, but he had difficulty moving the shoulder and grimaced while touching it.

Irving’s re-evaluation at the Cleveland Clinic on Monday diagnosed the shoulder sprain, although Scott didn’t want to speculate whether Irving has played his final game this season.
