Kyrie Irving has a fractured kneecap. He’ll undergo season-ending surgery in the next couple of days is projected to be out three to four months. In the meantime, the Cavs have a NBA Finals to contend with and in all likelihood Matthew Dellavedova will get the bulk of Irving’s minutes for the remainder of the series.
Kyrie posted this to Instagram:
I want to thank everyone for the well wishes. Saddened by the way I had to go out but it doesn’t take away from being apart of a special playoff run with my brothers. Truly means a lot for all the support and love. I Gave it everything I had and have no regrets. I love this game no matter what and I’ll be back soon. To my brothers: You already know what the deal is. And to Delly: “ICE it down del” *Big Perk voice *
I know I speak for all of Cleveland when I say “Get well soon Kyrie. You’ll be sorely missed.”
Game 2 of the NBA Finals is Sunday night (6/7/2015) when the Cavs are once again at Golden State (8:00 PM on ABC).
That’s Cleveland Baby
