Irving's knee still a concern for Cavaliers

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers coach Byron Scott says he would consider shutting down All-Star guard Kyrie Irving again if his right knee is still sore.

After scoring 20 points and leading the Cavs to a comeback win over Utah on Wednesday night, Irving said his knee still hurt and the only way it would get better is if he sat out the rest of the season. The Cavs recently rested Irving for three games after he hyperextended his knee when he banged it during practice.

Scott was unaware of Irving's comments until Thursday and said after practice he would sit the 20-year-old again "if he's hurting."

The coach says he doesn't want Irving "playing at 50%" and will consult with trainer Max Benton before making any decisions.
