Kyrie Irving - Fractured Finger Out 4 Weeks

UPDATE: In the past 12 hours, Minnesota Timberwolves Alexey Shved (17%), Cleveland's Daniel Gibson (10%), and the Bobcats Ramon Sessions (51%) have been the most popular replacement PGs.  Shved is a 6'6 Russian who dropped 22 points in his last outting while dishing out 7 assists and knocking down three 3pointers.  Not the worst option at the moment with all of the injuires the T'Wolves are currently dealing with.

Bad news out of Cleveland, as superstar PG Kyrie Irving is set to miss the next month with a fractured finger.
Irving will be impossible to replace as he is putting up 22 points 6 assist and 4 rebounds per game.  Daniel "Boobie" Gibson (5% owned Yahoo) and Dion Waiters (70%) are due for the biggest increase in playing time and potential stat boosting.  But do not forget about Jeremy Pargo (0%) & Donald Sloan (0%)!  Gibson, Waiters and Sloan has never been known to dish out the assists but they all can score the ball, be it in different ways.  Gibson is purely a 3pt shooter, Waiters has a decent 3pt shot but can also get the basket, and should be able to prove this now with more plays running through him instead of Kyrie.

Let us know who is available on your waiver wire and who you plan on dropping in order to replace Kyrie until the Holidays!
