Cavaliers list Kyrie Irving as out against Pacers

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland point guard hurt his knee last week against the Pacers and missed the team's game in Brooklyn on Saturday night.

The Pacers catch another injury break on Sunday evening when they face the Cleveland Cavaliers without point guard Kyrie Irving, according to the team's latest injury report.

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.
