The Cavs' dynamic guard banged his knee in traffic during the game last week in Indy which forced him to briefly leave so trainers could look at his left knee. Irving later returned the the game but then complained following the game that he wasn't right. An MRI the next day only revealed a contusion, but the Cavs are in no hurry to rush Irving back to the court, leaving him behind in Cleveland on Saturday when the team traveled to Brooklyn.
Irving leads the Cavs in scoring (22.2 ppg), assists (6.1 apg) and steals (1.1 spg). A familiar face will slide into the starting lineup for the Cavs with former Pacer Jarrett Jack slated to start at point guard.
