Kyrie Irving to miss second straight game, out Sunday vs. Pistons
Cavaliers head coach David Blatt told reporters before tip-off of Sunday’s home contest against the Pistons that Irving will be sidelined a second straight game.
The injury doesn’t appear to be too severe, and the cautious approach is probably the way to go, especially against a softer portion of the schedule.
But if this is something that ends up lingering, it could further delay the Cavaliers coming together from a chemistry standpoint to truly realize all that preseason potential.
Irving is averaging 20.2 points and 5.3 assists in 37.9 minutes per contest for Cleveland this season.
