Update 2:19 p.m.: No official description of the injury has been released, but Irving tweeted to say he's fine.

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving took a nasty fall in Team USA's 95-71 win over Ukraine in FIBA World Cup group play Thursday and had to be helped back to the locker room.

A GIF of the injury via GIFd Sports:

Irving took quite a while to get up and was eventually helped back to the locker room.

Irving's fall is sure to revisit the questions about stars playing in the tournament after Paul George's leg injury in exhibition play. Irving scored eleven points and added six assists to help Team USA pull away from a Ukrainian team that actually lead by as many as seven in the first quarter before Team USA righted the ship.
