A week after Cleveland Indians relief pitcher Nick Hagadone suffered a broken forearm in a "self-inflicted" injury from hitting something in the Tribe's clubhouse, comes word that Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving suffered a broken hand after hitting a wall.
What is going on around here?
Irving fractured a bone in his right hand during a Saturday morning practice with the Cavs Summer League team. He reportedly was upset about a turnover and smacked his hand into a padded wall that didn't have as much padding as he expected.
He is reportedly flying back to Cleveland today for surgery and is expected to miss six to eight weeks, but should be OK for the start of training camp.
“I’m a little disappointed for a freak accident like that,” Irving told The Beacon Journal. “I have to be more responsible about my health. It was crazy. It happened so fast. That thing I did, hitting the padding on the wall, I’ve done it so many times. This time it was just a freak accident.”
“It’s not bad luck. I’ve done a few things in that time between me getting hurt. It’s not bad luck, it just happens. Plays happen. They’re uncontrollable.”
Well, sort of. Players can't control some injuries but they can control hitting things - especially hard objects like walls.
Luckily it was just Irving's hand, which shouldn't really hurt him heading into the season. The worst part of the injury is Cavs fans won't get a look at Irving playing with first-round picks Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller in the Summer League.
Just another fun day in Cleveland sports.
