Cavaliers Injury Update: Kyrie Irving Fractures Jaw

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has been phenomenal when he's playing. Not even two seasons into his career, Irving has been injured multiple times. After missing several games with a fractured finger, Kyrie Irving managed to fracture his upper jaw according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.
That would the the count to three for the number of Cavaliers players wearing a protective mask today. Tristan Thompson and Tyler Zeller will also be playing with protective masks.

In 13 games this season, Irving is averaging 22.5 points and 5.7 assists a game, both increases over last year. He is shooting 45.5% from the field and 40% from beyond the arc. The Cavaliers were 2-9 without Irving and are 3-10 with him so far this season. After being Rookie of the Year last season and playing with Anderson Varejao whose had a tremendous season, fans are expecting to see more wins in their future.
