Kyrie Irving (facial contusion) has been ruled out for Saturday’s preseason game against the Lakers.
Irving re-aggravated his facial injury in the first quarter of the last preseason game and it’s fair for he and the team to decide that it was worth sitting the next one out to give it more time to heal. This doesn’t figure to linger with Irving much heading into the season. He is still a borderline first round pick.
