Jason Lloyd,  Cavaliers beat writer for the Akron Beacon Journal, tweeted the following on Irving's status.
Irving's status for the remainder of the season will be determined after he was diagnosed with a strain in the long head tendon of his left biceps after Monday's examination. Dion Waiters and Matthew Dellavedova saw extended minutes in the back court with Irving out. Waiters had 15 points and five assists in 36 minutes, while Dellavedova added four points and five rebounds in 22 minutes. .

Irving, the 21-year old from Australia,  was the first overall pick in the 2011 draft by the Cavaliers out of Duke.  In 64 games this season he's averaging 21.2 points, 6.2 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game.  In 174 career games, Irving is averaging 20.8 points, 5.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game.
