Cavs PG Kyrie Irving Is Sick, Will Be A Game-Time Decision Vs. Bulls

The much anticipated first meeting between two of the game's best young point guards may have to be put on hold yet again. Sam Amico is reporting that Cavs rookie Kyrie Irving has an illness and will be a game-time decision tonight when the Chicago Bulls travel to Cleveland to play the Cavaliers.
