Kyrie Irving (Illness), Kevin Love (Back) Questionable Tonight; Iman Shumpert To Play Vs. Heat
Kyrie Irving, who came down with an illness the past couple of off-days for the Cavs, is questionable to play tonight against the Heat.
Irving has been relatively healthy this season, missing just five games this season. In three games against the Heat, he’s averaging 20.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 5.0 assists in three games against the Heat this season.
In 70 games his season, Irving has averaged 21.9 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 1.5 steals.
Kevin Love, who’s dealing with a back injury he suffered late in Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers, remains a game-time decision. He was present at the morning shootaround, but did not fully participate.
Iman Shumpert, who also suffered an ankle injury against the Sixers, practiced Wednesday and will play Thursday afternoon against the Heat.
