Kyrie Irving Injury Update: Rookie Star To Miss Next Two Games

Kyrie Irving's concussion suffered against the Miami Heat earlier in the week has had the rookie star listed as 'day to day' for the next while, and it looks like the injury has gotten the better of the 19 year old. Boyer Reed tweeted Friday morning that Irving will be missing both of Cleveland's weekend games with concussion issues.

The Cavs' two games this weekend are against the Milwaukee Bucks Friday evening and the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday. The Cavs were able to work without their young star against the Los Angeles Clippers when Ramon Sessions stepped up into the point guard role in a big way, with 23 points and 13 assists. They'll need similar performances to keep coming from Sessions if they want to keep their hopes up in a tight spot for the lower playoff spots in the Eastern conference.

The Cavs announced the signing of Ben Uzoh on Friday to mitigate a bit of the damage.

Kyrie Irving Injury: Concussion Sidelines Cleveland Cavaliers Rookie

The Cleveland Cavaliers haven't had a lot of bright spots in their lineup this season, but first overall pick Kyrie Irving has shown he was worthy of the honor. Unfortunately for the Cleveland faithful, however, Irving was diagnosed with a concussion on Wednesday -- a scary injury that doesn't happen all that often in basketball.

There aren't a lot of details surrounding the rookie's injury, but the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that he was diagnosed with the head injury during Wednesday's pregame.

The injury apparently happened, according to the Plain Dealer, when he was kneed in the head during Tuesday evening's contest. Irving complained about having a headache and, prior to Wednesday's game, he was diagnosed with the concussion.

As of now, there is no timetable for his return.
