Although Kyrie Irving's knee continues to bother him, the team is not planning to sit him. Despite prior reports that said the Cleveland Cavaliers would likely sit Irving if the knee continued to give the young point guard trouble, that doesn't seem to be accurate.
According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, a source close to the Cavaliers have said they have no plans of sitting Irving. It would be understandable that the team may consider it, but there may have been a miscommunication between Irving and his coach Byron Scott about the severity of the knee problem. This miscommunication led Scott to say the club would shut him down if necessary.
Irving is one of the most exciting and dynamic young players in the NBA. There aren't many who don't believe he will be a superstar going forward. Irving made his first All-Star Game this season, and he looks poised to take the role of "Best Point Guard" away from Chris Paul.
In his career, Irving has averaged 20.8 points and 5.6 assists per game. So far this season, he is averaging 23.2 points and 5.7 assists per game.
