Cavs’ Kyrie Irving To Undergo MRI For Knee
Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving is set to undergo an MRI on Friday (June 5) to determine the extent of a left knee injury he suffered during Game 1 of the NBA Finals, reports ESPN.
The 23-year-old went down, as he drove with the ball with two minutes left in the Cavs' 108-100 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night (June 4).
He immediately grabbed his left knee and limped off to the locker room. It's the same knee that's been bothering him with tendinitis for the past six weeks.
According to the report, initial tests done by the Cavs' medical staff revealed no damage to Irving's anterior cruciate ligament or medial collateral ligament.
"You can hear in the tone of my voice that I'm a little worried," Irving said. "I just want to make sure everything is OK, and I'm going to take the necessary steps to see what's going on."
He exited the arena on crutches Thursday night.
