Kyrie Irving Injury Update: Cavaliers Rookie Suffers Sprained Right Shoulder, Will Be Re-Evaluated Saturday Morning

In Friday night's 121-84 blow out loss to the Milwaukee Bucks Friday, Cleveland Cavaliers rookie guard Kyrie Irving left the game in the fourth quarter with an injury to his right shoulder and never returned. Fearing the worse, Cavs' fans got a bit of good news from Irving and reporters in the post-game.

Chris Fedor of ESPN Radio's WKNR, also tweeted Irving said the level of pain in his shoulder is nowhere near as bad as when he separated it during his sophomore year of high school.

Not surprising to Cavs' fans, Irving left the blow-out loss while in the midst of a possible 30-point night, which would have been only his second of the season. Instead, Irving had to settled for a 29-point performance.
