Kyrie Irving injures eye in loss to Spurs, may miss time

As if the loss was not enough, Kyrie Irving is dealing with a scratched cornea sustained against the San Antonio Spurs last night, and may have to miss time to heal.

Both he and guard Marco Belinelli went for a rebound late in last night's loss to the Spurs, the latter raking Irving's face, causing him to collapse to the ground in pain for some moments.

It's unknown at present if Kyrie will need to miss time to heal the eye, but he did have to don some sunglasses to attend the postgame presser. He'll be on antibiotics going forward, and we'll keep you up to date with any news on the issue.
