Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters miss practice, are questionable for Friday

Both Kyrie Irving (illness) and Dion Waiters (right wrist tendonitis) missed Thursday’s practice and are questionable for Friday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Irving, winner of the most recent Eastern Conference Player of the Week award, is coming off a game with 25 points and 10 assists. He has been on a role since a scoreless game in Atlanta earlier this month. If he’s unable to play, it is expected that Jarrett Jack and Matthew Dellavedova would see the bulk of the minutes at point guard.

Waiters, who is also dealing with a sore knee, hit 11-of-19 shots and two 3-pointers for 25 points, three rebounds, five assists and a steal in Tuesday’s loss to Portland. Like Irving, he had been on a role prior to the injury, scoring 25, 16 and 21 points in each of his last three games.

    Waiters injury occurred when he was patting himself on the back for the 100th time and Irving has a case of Miamitis.
