Kyrie Irving Magically Heals After Hurting Knee During Game
In Cleveland's game tonight against Oklahoma City, prohibitive first half MVP Kyrie Irving had to be helped to the locker room after leaving the court with an apparent knee injury. As the video shows, Irving came out to contest Russell Westbrook's shot, and then got a knee into his knee for his trouble. He returned in the second half, but after being down on the court for some time, we'll have to see how well that knee holds out.
The Cavs are hanging with the Thunder in a game that already has LeBron on the bench with knee issues, but their thoughts go beyond this game. They'll need their spark plug, Irving, to hang onto their tenuous lead in the Central.
