Irving was elbowed in the face by Minnesota's Corey Brewer in the first quarter Wednesday night. The All-Star was taken for X-rays, which came back negative, and returned in the second quarter. The team said further examination at Cleveland Clinic on Thursday and Friday revealed the fracture.
Irving, who is averaging 19.4 points and 6.9 assists, fractured a bone in his jaw last season but was fitted with a mask and continued to play.
