Kyrie Irving Questionable for Game 2 vs. Hawks

Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving aggravated his left knee injury in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and Irving is questionable to play in Friday night’s Game 2 in Atlanta, the team announced.

Irving missed Friday morning’s shootaround because of his left knee tendinitis and will be reevaluated. There’s pessimism in the locker room about his status:

Irving has been battling injuries throughout the postseason. He first injured his right foot in the first round against the Boston Celtics, and then he developed the knee tendinitis in the second round against the Chicago Bulls. The point guard barely played in the series-clinching Game 6 victory over the Bulls, but he decided to give it a go in the Game 1 victory over Atlanta.

However, Irving tweaked the knee injury in the third quarter and limped off the court. He briefly returned to action before sitting out most of the fourth quarter.

If Irving misses Game 2, that’ll put even more pressure on LeBron James and J.R. Smith to handle the scoring load. Matthew Dellavedova will also have to step up again like he did in Game 6 in Chicago.
