Kyrie Irving is the future of the NBA, but he is injury-prone. Irving suffered another injury last night and had to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers' game against the Toronto Raptors in the third quarter. Cleveland went on to lose the game 100-96.
According to Associated Press reports, Irving suffered a bruised shoulder in the third quarter and had to leave. He was evaluated in the locker room and X-rays came back negative. However, Irving will be evaluated further back in Cleveland.
Irving has notably suffered a fractured jaw and fracture finger earlier in the season. There's not much the team or Irving can do to avoid injuries in the future. They happen. If Irving were doing something to put himself in harm's way, they may be able to correct the issue, but that doesn't seem to be the problem.
Irving is an exciting young player that gives the Cavaliers' fans something to watch every night. He is averaging 23.0 points and 5.7 assists per game. Last season, Irving averaged 18.5 points and 5.4 assists per game.
