Kyrie Irving: (Knee) Sidelined Tuesday

Rotowire.com
Update: Irving will not play Tuesday in Chicago due to a hyperextended right knee, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Moreover, he's questionable for Wednesday's tilt against Toronto, with Shaun Livingston getting the nod at point guard in his absence.

Recommendation: There was some concern expressed recently regarding Irving's sore knee, specifically that the Cavaliers would watch his situation closely. Apparently, the team's medical and training staff felt the need to give him a brief rest, after receiving significant run -- 36 minutes per game -- in 25 combined games in December and January. Here's to hope that Irving's stint on the sidelines gets his shooting stroke back to normal, though those in head-to-head leagues will lament the fact that he may miss two of Cleveland's three outings this week.
