Irving was listed as questionable for the game because of left knee tendinitis and the club announced that the All-Star guard will not be suiting up for the contest.

The 23 year-old, who struggled during scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting from the field in the Game 1 victory on Wednesday night,

He played 27 minutes and sat out the final eight minutes of the Cavs’ 97-89 victory on the road.

The club remains cautious about his status, but it is understood that the former Duke star could also miss Game 3 on Sunday.

“I can’t say it’s better or worse, I can just tell you that the medical staff made a decision that it was better to hold him out,” Cleveland head coach David Blatt said.

This now means Matthew Dellavedova will be handling the ball more in Irving’s absence, while J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert are set for bigger minutes and responsibilities.

In fact, the Cavaliers have announced that Dellavedova, who is averaging 5.5 points and 2.7 assists in the postseason, will get the start for Game 2.

Meanwhile, DeMarre Carroll, who was a late game-time decision for the Atlanta Hawks, has shockingly been named in the starting lineup, despite picking up a knee injury in Game 1.

Carroll, the team’s leading contributor in this playoffs, suffered a bone bruise in his knee on Wednesday, and was listed as day-to-day. He took part in a light shootaround Friday morning.

Carroll is averaging 16.2 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game in this postseason, and the Hawks will be delighted to have him available.
