Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving experienced an injury to his left biceps during the first quarter of last night’s game in Los Angeles against the Clippers. He did not return to play following the injury. Irving traveled back to Cleveland with the team and was examined at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health this afternoon by Cavaliers Head Team Physician Dr. Richard Parker. Imaging revealed a strain in the long head tendon of his left biceps. Irving will now undergo a period of inactivity for his left biceps and be re-evaluated in two weeks. The injury’s response during this period will determine the most appropriate course of treatment and his status will be updated as appropriate.
