Chris Chambers/Getty Images(INDEPENDENCE, Ohio) — Cleveland Cavliers guard Kyrie Irving has been bitten by the injury bug once again.

The team announced Monday that the all-star will miss three to four weeks with a sprained left shoulder.

Irving was injured Sunday night in a collision with the Raptor’s Jonas Valanciunas that knocked him out of bounds on a baseline drive.

“We just have to wait and see what happens,” Cavs coach Byron Scott said after practice Monday. “I don’t want to speculate and say, ‘Hey, if he can get back he’ll get back. If he can’t, he can’t.’ We’re just going to have to wait until it’s completely healed and go from there.”

Irving missed 29 games over his first two seasons, and could miss the rest of this season with the injury.

However, Scott isn’t concerned with his young point guard’s health issues. “He’s still very young and his body hasn’t fully developed,” Scott said. “I’m just not that concerned about it, to be honest with you.”
