Kyrie Irving exited Tuesday night’s loss to the Pacers in the third quarter after suffering a non-contact injury to his left knee on a drive to the basket. He was able to return but says he felt a “pop”, his knee feels weak and he will undergo an MRI on Wednesday.
According to The Plain Dealer:
Asked what he thought had happened, Irving said, “I thought the worst had happened. Just a routine play, just felt something pop in my knee a little bit. I just had to come out of the game. My left knee is pretty weak right now. When I came back in I was falling all over the place. I didn’t have my legs under me. I’m going to get an MRI [Wednesday] and hope for the best, honestly.
…The doc gave me the OK to go back out there, but when I went back out there, I still didn’t feel right. so get an MRI tomorrow, see what’s going on with my knee and go from there.
