Default Re: Breaking News: Kyrie Irving out 4 weeks

As far as I'm concerned if they can go 4 weeks without him and rack up a decent amount of losses to get a good pick then they're better off for it. If Waiters can develop during that time, better yet.
Pretty much how I feel. Yes, eventually I'd like to see the kid play through these kinds of injuries, but now is certainly not that time. And, I'm guessing this is a decision that was made by the coaches and doctors and not Kyrie, since he played one game following the injury.

If I had to guess, and I say this having watched Kyrie in every game he's played as a professional, they took a look at his performance and didn't like what they saw (his worst game in some time).

And, I agree with that decision if it was made by management. Absolutely no reason to risk re-injuring the hand before it fully heals when this team isn't going to be very good either way.
