New York, NY (Sports Network) - Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving will be available for Saturday's matchup with the New York Knicks after suffering a small left maxillary fracture on Friday.

The second-year Duke product landed on the left side of his face following a layup during Friday's 90-86 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Irving underwent a CT Scan following the game that revealed the fracture.

Irving did not travel with the team so he could be fitted with a protective mask, but will make the trip to New York and is expected to be available to play. Irving missed 11 games earlier this season with a broken left finger.

Over 13 games this season, Irving is averaging 22.5 points and 5.7 assists per game.
