Bucks Vs. Cavaliers: Cleveland Face Milwaukee, Possibly Without Kyrie Irving

The Cleveland Cavaliers will meet the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday, and might be without their best player when they do so.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will take on the Milwaukee Bucks at home on Friday, but might have to do so with their best player off the floor. After suffering a concussion against the Miami Heat earlier in the week, rookie star Kyrie Irving is listed as day to day and might need to miss his second game in a row if his head doesn't calm itself down.

Ramon Sessions will likely take Irving's place, where he had a shining game against the Los Angeles Clippers with 24 points and 13 assists in Irving's first missed game of the year.

Milwaukee will be close to full strength, with Brandon Jennings again leading the way for the team. Jennings has stirred the pot a bit with recent comments implying he plans to leave Milwaukee once his rookie contract is up, but until that happens he has to keep trying to carry the Bucks since they've shown this year that as Jennings goes, the Bucks go. Milwaukee is currently 11-14, a game ahead of Cleveland as the two of them look to scrap it out for a low level playoff spot in the weak Eastern conference.

The game will be at Quicken Loans Arena at 7:30 PM ET.
