The Cleveland Cavaliers don't have much to draw fans to the arena with.  They don't win games.  They don't have LeBron James.  The good people of Cleveland have little reason to show up and support the Cavs at all.  That is, unless Kyrie Irving is playing.  Irving is a show in and of himself.  Unfortunately, he is out again with an apparent injury.According to Bob Finnan of the News-Herald, Irving underwent an MRI on his knee yesterday and did not play.  It appears to be related to him hyper-extending the knee.Cavs guard Kyrie Irving had an MRI on his right knee in Chicago. He could be back on the court Friday.— Bob Finnan (@BobCavsinsider) February 27, 2013 @wayneembryskids MRI confirmed irving had a sore/hyperextended knee— Bob Finnan (@BobCavsinsider) February 28, 2013 Irving had previously missed time this season with a fractured finger and a fractured jaw.  THe Cavaliers are hopeful this knee injury does not cost him much time.  Since the MRI didn't reveal any tear, the team is likely going to be cautious and allow the pain to subside before Irving hits the court again.So far this season, Irving is averaging 23.3 points, 5.6 assists, and 3.6 boards per game.  He made the All-Star Game this year as well.  The scary part is this is just his second year in the league.  Irving has averaged 20.8 points, 5.5 assists, and 3.7 rebounds in his career.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");
