Kyrie Irving Sidelined with Biceps Injury

NBA via Cleveland Cavaliers(CLEVELAND) --  Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving will miss at least two weeks with an arm injury, the team announced Monday.

Irving injured his left biceps during Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.  An MRI Monday revealed a strained tendon.  The team initially feared Irving suffered a tear after a mid-air collision with Clippers forward Blake Griffin, which could have meant the end of his season.

The Cavaliers (26-41) have a faint chance to catch the Atlanta Hawks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.  An injury to their best player is a severe setback for the entire organization.

In 64 games this season, the 21-year-old Irving is averaging 21.2 points and 6.2 assists per game for the Cavaliers.
