Kyrie Irving out four weeks with broken finger

Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Iriving will miss the next four weeks due to a hairline fracture in his left index finger, according to Bob Finnin of The News-Herald.

Irving, the No. 1 overall pick in 2011, currently ranks sixth in the NBA in scoring with 22.9 points per game. In addition, he is averaging 5.6 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game.

At this point, it's not known will start in Irving's place.

Coach Byron Scott could start Jeremy Pargo or Donald Sloan, or go with a backcourt of Dion Waiters and Daniel Gibson, currently the team's leading scorer off the bench.
