Kyrie Irving is out the next three to four weeks with a left shoulder sprain. The Cavs' point guard suffered the injury in the third quarter of Sunday night's game with the Toronto Raptors.
X-rays were negative, but Irving was reevaluated Monday and an MRI and exam revealed a left acromioclavicular sprain, the Cavs announced. Irving needs rest and treatment. Such a bad break for one of the best point guards in the league.
Even if Irving makes it back in three weeks, he won't have much season left. The injury couldn't have come at a worse time for fantasy owners as playoffs are starting in some leagues. Shaun Livingston is the guy to pickup.
