Sounds about right for the Cavs.

Kyrie Irving injured his left bicep in a loss on Sunday to the Clippers, and may have his season ended because of it, reports the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. Irving is set to have an MRI today to confirm the injury and figure out a timetable.

The Cavaliers are just 26-41, but still have slim hope for the postseason at 4.5 games back of the Hawks. But if Irving were indeed done, any chance of that happening are sunk with him.

Irving left Sunday's game in the first quarter after bumping into Blake Griffin.

The Cavs point guard has gained a bit of a reputation for being injury prone, though this season he's only missed three games because of a left knee contusion, but played through a broken nose.

Irving, 21, is averaging 21.5 points and 6.3 assists this season.
