OKLAHOMA CITY— Hilton Hotels has apologized after Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving said he was bitten by bed bugs Saturday night during his stay in downtown Oklahoma City.

Irving played just nine minutes the next day in a nationally televised win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Irving later said it was because he discovered the bugs and slept on the couch instead of his bed at the Skirvin Hilton. He said he had just three hours of sleep and had tightness in his back afterward.

Hilton said in a statement it was “sorry to hear about Mr. Irving’s stay.”

Health inspectors from the Oklahoma City-County Health Department say adjacent rooms were inspected by a professional pest company, and no other signs of bed bugs were noted.
