You can exhale a little bit, Cavaliers fans. But maybe not too much.
Kyrie Irving injured his knee in the third quarter Tuesday against the Pacers and had to be carried off the floor. He later returned to the game and appeared to be OK, but will have an MRI on Wednesday to check for any damage.
Irving did say he felt a pop in his knee, though.
"I thought the worst had happened," Irving told reporters following the game. "My left knee is pretty weak right now. I was falling all over the place. I didn't have my legs under me.
"I'm still hoping that there's nothing wrong, just something slight, if anything at all," Irving said. "Just hoping for the best."
The Cavs fell to the Pacers 91-76, their sixth straight loss.
