INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving injured his left knee Tuesday in a loss to Indiana and was scheduled to have an MRI on Wednesday.
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.
"When I went back it still didn't feel right," Irving said. "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."
Irving finished with 10 points, five assists and five rebounds.
"It's probably something slight, if anything at all," Irving said.
The Cavaliers have lost six straight.
