Cavaliers Injury Update: Kyrie Irving spotted in a walking boot

By on 10/08/2014 11:00:00 PM

Early Wednesday morning Brian Windhorst of ESPN tweeted that star point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kyrie Irving, was seen wearing a walking boot.

Considering Irving’s history with injuries, I wasn’t surprised in the least that the point guard may be suffering from another setback. As news does, it didn’t take long before the details surrounding the injury were revealed. Much like Windhorst, Cavaliers’ reporter and NBA insider Chris Haynes also took to Twitter to break the news on Irving.
Hopefully Irving is telling the truth and the injury is nothing ‘serious’. With the Cavs looking to create chemistry on and off the court, Irving’s injury doesn’t come at the best time. Even with LeBron and Love healthy, not having their point guard could create problems, especially with the season set to begin soon.

That being said, do I think the Cavaliers are going to struggle if Irving is down at the start of the season? Not in the least. The Cavs have possibly the best starting five the NBA has seen since the days of Jordan’s Bulls. Bold? Yes, but it’s true. Not only that, the team’s bench is filled with players that LeBron trusts. He made it to the finals last year with players he didn’t -  think about it. And no offence to the boys in Miami, but the Cavs rotation is leaps and bounds better than the Heat.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Cavs are going to make the finals this year. I think LeBron has set himself up to make history in Cleveland, and with the help of Love and a healthy Irving, there is no ceiling for how exceptional this team can become
