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.
