Kyrie Irving is likely to miss a few more weeks due to a shoulder impingement, league sources told Brian Lewis of the New York Post.
Irving has already missed 10 straight games with the injury.
Two specialists told the Post that Irving will miss a few more weeks, with one medical source not affiliated with the Nets implying that there's more to the injury than what the team was revealing.
“That’s a very, very broad term. Impingement typically does not refer to an acute injury. [It] refers to more of a long-standing, chronic issue with the rotator cuff. He could have a rotator cuff injury which could be just tendinitis and inflammation all the way up to a partial tear. It’s unlikely a full tear. … In terms of time off, I can’t answer that question. It’s certainly conceivable if he really hurt his shoulder with an injury to the rotator cuff he may need few weeks," said Dr. Andrew S. Rokito, chief of shoulder surgery at NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital.
