Kyrie Irving Is Still Hopeful Of Returning This Season


Kyrie Irving, the All-Star point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers, will miss at least two weeks with a strained biceps tendon, but he’s hopeful his season is not over.

“If you could take a positive from the situation, obviously that would be one, that at this point, I don’t have to get surgery, which is tremendous,” Irving said following shootaround Tuesday at the Cleveland Clinic Courts.

Cleveland’s leading scorer got hurt Sunday night in a loss against the Los Angeles Clippers, an MRI taken Monday revealed the strain, but not a tear, which would have ended Irving’s season.
