NEW YORK (AP) -- Cavaliers rookie point guard Kyrie Irving's sprained right shoulder could keep him from facing the Knicks.
Irving injured his shoulder during Friday night's loss to Milwaukee in Cleveland. He traveled with the Cavaliers to New York and was evaluated Saturday morning by the team's training staff, which listed him as questionable for the game. It's not yet clear if Irving had X-rays or an MRI.
The presumptive rookie of the year, Irving said after Friday's game that he was in pain. He also revealed he separated his right shoulder as a high school sophomore.
Despite favoring his shoulder, Irving scored 29 points and made all six 3-point attempts in Cleveland's 121-84 loss to Milwaukee.
The Cavaliers have lost six straight and nine of 10 to drop from the playoff chase.
