The Cleveland Cavaliers season has been a rough one. Kyrie Irving suffered a knee injury against the Indiana Pacers adding to the Cavs woes this season. Irving was helped off the floor in the third quarter after falling awkwardly on a missed layup. A team physician cleared Irving to play and he returned in the fourth.
Irving returned in the fourth quarter and was only able to muster up two points on free throws as Indiana ran away to a 91-76 victory against the Cavaliers. Irving is set to receive an MRI on the knee after suffering the injury.
"When I went back it still didn't feel right. I thought the worst happened. I felt something pop in my knee. I was falling down around all over the place. It was a painful experience. I was praying to God everything was OK. I just have to hope for the best. We'll see what's going on. It's probably something slight, if anything at all," Irving said.
It's good to hear Kyrie say that this shouldn't be too serious, but hearing a pop is never a good thing. Irving finished the game with 10 points, five assists and five rebounds. Cleveland is currently in the midst of a six-game losing streak and now has a rough 10-21 record.
