Kyrie Irving is Hurt...Again
ESPN has reported that Kyrie Irving has a broken jaw and will play with a face mask. You got to love the guys toughness but that's got to be his 5th injury in 3 years, lets hope this isnt going to be a reoccurring thing with him every year
its hard to blame his injuries many have been just unlucky accidents...he went into the paint hard and got bumped by two bigs and slammed his head on the floor. take in how tough he is though, to have stayed in the game and continue playing the way he did and finishing with 28pts i think.
I'm a huge fan of his and most of his injuries have been unlucky but it still worries you about the wear and tear on his body.
Ca's now have 3 guys wearing masks. Irving, Thompson, Zeller.
It's like watching a friday the 13th movie when they are playing. Geez.
and tbose masks are so ugly too! at least rip's style is watchable but those with the 2 white bands are UGLY. but yea kyrie is getting hurt way too often regardless of unluckiness or not.. at least his game isn't based off athleticism??
Kyrie Irving is injury prone...
The good thing is he hasn't had a major injury.
Kyrie needs to play in some bubble rap jesus.
Oh sh!t that was a pretty bad fall though. Surprised he didn't have a concussion.
But he got back up and still played alright. So I guess it is a very small fracture with only a little bit of swelling.
Kyrie is really serious about getting into his Uncle Drew character. Old bones.
Seriously? A broken jaw? That is serious man...I'd honestly prefer if they just didn't let him play the rest of the season and we just tank to get Shabazz. Disappointing season but overall its whats best for the team.
You can let Irving play and probably have a great chance at landing Shabazz.
The injuried Irving is dropping 40 pts on the Knicks defense tonight
edit: What a player this Kyrie! Varejao missing the crucial free throw though..
Wow I checked the box score and he had 24 points when he checked in with 6 minutes left in the 4th.
Kid finished with 41 with 17 in the last period. He really is Mr. Fourth Quarter.
A broken jaw is serious, but it's not as serious as like a torn ligament, cartilage problems, major ankle issues, back issues, etc in a ball player. A broken jaw isn't going to affect the way Kyrie Irving breaks guys down off of the dribble, changes directions or shoots a jump shot.
