Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving suffered a sprained right shoulder in Friday night's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Despite the injury, he made the trip with the team to New York and was re-evaluated Saturday morning.
According to Tom Withers of the Associated Press, Irving is officially listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Knicks:

I can't imagine the Cavs letting their star rookie play with there being any possibility of his shoulder sprain getting worse in a lost season, but you have to believe Irving will be doing everything he can to get himself into the lineup.
