CLEVELAND — Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving will be sidelined for at least four weeks with a fractured index finger.

Irving was injured in Saturday night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.

An MRI and CT Scan at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health showed a hairline fracture in the guard’s left finger. He has a reevaluation for the fracture in two weeks.

Also, Irving isn’t the only Cavalier with a fracture.

Forward/center Tristan Thompson was injured in the second quarter against the Philadelphia 76ers Sunday. An x-ray revealed a broken nose, but he has been cleared to play after being outfitted with a protective mask.
