Kyrie Irving Injury Update: Cavs Star To See Team Doctors In Cleveland Sunday

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving will return to Cleveland to see Team Physicians Dr. Richard Parker and Dr.Thomas Graham Sunday for a second look at his fractured hand, according to a statement from the team.

As has been widely reported, Irving injured his right hand by slapping a padded wall in frustration during the team's practice in Las Vegas. It appears the second-year guard and defending NBA Rookie of the Year will need surgery on the hand, but he's expected to return by the start of Training Camp in late September.

The Cavs say they will update Irving's status after the former Duke guard is re-examined.

It's interesting to note that Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone also visited Dr. Graham at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health after punching a wall in frustration and injuring his hand.

Irving was off to a promising start to the summer after participating in Team USA's training camp in Las Vegas, but one would think he might've seen his last Summer League action.
