Kyrie Irving Expected to Miss Four Weeks With Hairline Fracture In His Left Index Finger

Kyrie Irving Expected to Miss Four Weeks With Hairline Fracture In His Left Index Finger

Kyrie Irving spent a good chunk of the summer recovering from a broken right hand after slapping the padding on a wall at his team's practice facility. This past Saturday, Irving must have felt a strange feeling of deja vu (and pain) after injuring his left index finger. As it turns out, an MRI and CT scan revealed the Cavaliers point guard suffered "a hairline/non-displaced fracture in the finger."

Even though the injury will not require surgery, he'll be required to wear a splint until he is re-evaluated in two weeks. Irving is expected to miss four weeks, which may seem like an eternity given the Cavs' current state of disarray with a 2-8 record and their 6-game losing streak.
