Kyrie Irving: (Illness) Doubtful For Friday

Update: Irving missed morning shootaround with flu-like symptoms and is doubtful for Friday's game against the Grizzlies, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. He will be re-evaluated Friday afternoon.

Recommendation: This is surprising, as Irving's illness was not reported before shootaround. There is a silver lining here, however, as Irving did not miss the shootaround because of his sore right knee. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Shaun Livingston will get the start at point guard if Irving sits Friday. Owners will want to check back closer to tipoff to confirm Irving's status before making any lineup decisions.
