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.
Irving was diagnosed with a concussion by team doctor A.J. Cianflocco. Club says no timetable for his return— Reed, Boyer (@PDcavsinsider) February 9, 2012
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.
