Cleveland, OH – Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving will miss at least a week after aggravating a shoulder injury Monday night.
Irving did not travel with the team for Wednesday's game at Milwaukee, staying behind to have an MRI which confirmed the rookie had aggravated his contused and sprained right shoulder.
The Cavaliers said he will be out 7-10 to rest and receive treatment, then start rehab.
Irving, who is averaging 18.8 points and 5.7 assists in 46 games this season, originally injured the shoulder in Friday night's home game against Milwaukee. Last year's No. 1 draft pick sat out Saturday against New York then aggravated the injury against San Antonio on Monday.
The Cavs carried an eight-game losing streak into Wednesday's game against the Bucks.
