Kyrie Irving Injury Update: Point Guard Says He Didn't Punch Wall

Not that there's much of a difference when an injury like this sidelines you 6-8 weeks, but Kyrie Irving would like everyone to know that he denies one element of the story circulating the Internet.

To be clear, Irving slapped the wall, instead.

Whether this makes things better or worse is up to each individual, but the latest setback is starting to give Irving and injury-prone label. The Cavaliers point guard missed 14 games last season and played 11 games in his only season at Duke.

His durability will continue to be a question mark early in his NBA career.
