Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving plays through knee pain, flu

Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving was not expected to play Friday night against the Memphis Grizzlies. Beyond experiencing knee pain, the second-year player was dealing with flu-like symptoms. However, Irving came out and declared he would suit up despite his ailments, as reported by Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal.



Considering everything he was dealing with, most expected Irving to see limited minutes Friday against the Grizz. However, the 20-year-old played 36 minutes in the team’s 92-103 loss to Memphis. He shot 11-21 from the field, finishing the game with 24 points, two rebounds and three assists.
