Kyrie Irving Projected Out for Next Four Weeks According to Team

The Cleveland Cavaliers sent a release out tonight indicating that Kyrie Irving could be out for up to four weeks while recovering from a "hairline/non-displaced fracture of his contused left index finger".

I am translating this to read his finger is real jacked up and he'll be out for a while because of it.
 
Here is what the Cavaliers are saying, however, from a technical standpoint:
 
Cavaliers Guard Kyrie Irving received an MRI and CT Scan of his contused left index finger (3rd quarter of Saturday night’s game at The Q vs. Dallas) today at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health.  The results of the MRI and CT Scan revealed a hairline/non-displaced fracture in the finger. The injury will be treated with taping and a splint. He is currently projected to be Out for the next four weeks while the fracture heals, and is scheduled to be re-evaluated in two weeks. His status will be updated as appropriate at that point. 
 
In two weeks Irving is scheduled to be re-evaluated. Don't get so upset you read right over that part. I had to read this email four times before it sunk in myself. Would be a real bummer if Irving was out for a month.
 
Oh and also, Tristan Thompson will be wearing a mask of his own too I guess:
 
Cavaliers forward/center Tristan Thompson experienced a nasal contusion during the second quarter of the game in Philadelphia last night.  An x-ray at the Cleveland Clinic today revealed a nasal fracture. He will have a protective mask fitted and is projected to be ready to play in Wednesday’s game at The Q also vs. the Sixers.

Cavs went to Philly and came back as a walking MASH unit. Awesome.
