Cleveland Cavaliers‘ guard Kyrie Irving is expected to miss three to four weeks after suffering a shoulder sprain last night against Toronto. Irving left during the third quarter of last night’s game at the Air Canada Centre and X-rays taken were negative.

Irving was reevaluated today in Cleveland where an MRI and physical exam by Cavaliers Head Team Physician Dr. Richard Parker revealed the sprain in Irving’s left shoulder. Irving has missed 14 games this season with a broken finger and hyperextended knee and with only 19 games left on the Cavaliers schedule, Irving may not suit up again this season.

The guard has scored 23 points a night for the Cavs this season on 46.6 percent shooting in his second season in the NBA.
