Cavaliers PG Kyrie Irving has left knee tendinitis, right foot strain

Monday May 11th, 2015

An MRI on Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving on Monday revealed that he has tendinitis in his left knee.

Cavaliers coach David Blatt said on Friday that Irving is dealing with a right foot strain, an injury he said he suffered during the team's first-round series against the Boston Celtics.

Despite the injuries, Irving has not missed any games this postseason. Over eight games, the 23-year-old has averaged 20.9 points, 3.5 assists and 3.8 rebounds.

He scored 12 points on 2-of-10 shooting in Cleveland's win over the Chicago Bulls in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals in Chicago on Sunday.

Irving will play in Game 5 on Tuesday in Cleveland.
