CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – It is going from bad to worse for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rookie guard Kyrie Irving did not travel with the Cavaliers to Milwaukee for Wednesday night’s game.

He underwent an MRI Wednesday morning at the Cleveland Clinic after aggravating a right shoulder sprain in Tuesday night’s 125-90 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

Irving, who also sustained a contusion, is expected to miss 7-10 days.

He scored 13 points and shot 5 of 15 from the floor in the loss.

The news was first reported by Fox 8’s John Telich.

Irving wore a protective brace or sleeve on his shoulder after sitting out Saturday night at New York. He participated in the non-contact portion of practice on Monday and participated Tuesday morning in shootaround without incident.

Irving, who is the odds on favorite to be named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year, originally sustained the injury in a 37 point loss to Milwaukee Friday night.

The Cavaliers have lost eight straight and 11 of their last 12.
