Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving
suffered a left shoulder contusion in Sunday's 100-96 loss against the Toronto
The injury occurred when Irving collided with Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas
in the third quarter. He shot the resulting free throws with one hand, sinking
the first but missing the second. Afterwards, he went to the locker room and
did not return to the game. He will be re-evaluated on Monday.
X-rays came back negative, but Irving had trouble getting dressed, as he was
unable to move the arm and required assistance.
Irving has missed 14 games this season. He missed 11 games between Nov. 21 and
Dec. 8 due to a broken finger and sat out three games between Feb. 26 and
March 1 because of a sore right knee.
