Cavs G Kyrie Irving Questionable For Game 2 In Atlanta Friday Night

Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving is questionable for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals due to symptoms related to left knee tendinitis the team announced.

Irving, who was named Thursday to the All-NBA third-team, did not attend the Cavs shootaround Friday morning in Atlanta to undergo further evaluation by team physician Dr. Richard Parker.

Irving has been playing with a sprained right foot sustained in Game 2 of their opening round series against the Celtics, which has led to the sore left knee. The team said Friday morning that treatment following Game 1 did not alleviate the symptoms and additional evaluation was recommended.

Irving scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting to go with 6 assists in the Cavs’ 97-89 win in Game 1 Wednesday night in Atlanta.

Irving aggravated his left knee in the Cavs’ close-out win in Game 6 in Chicago that saw him play only 12 minutes. Matthew Dellavedova, who would be called upon to help fill the void should Irving sit out Friday, scored 19 points – 11 in the fourth quarter – in 34 minutes off the bench in the Game 6 win over the Bulls.

Dellavedova went 0-6 and did not score Wednesday night in just under 25 minutes.
