Kyrie Irving injury update news isn't good. It isn't necessarily bad either, though this Kyrie Irving knee injury has most of the basketball world paying attention. A report from ESPN on Tuesday night (Dec. 31) states that he hurt the knee against the Indiana Pacers. He is scheduled to get an MRI on Wednesday (Jan. 1) likely cutting into his plans in regard to enjoying New Year's Eve. It seems like there could be something wrong in his leg, but nobody will know for sure until Wednesday.
The post game quotes from the start point guard of the Cleveland Cavaliers didn't exactly sound promising. Speaking about his knee he stated, "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."
This latest Kyrie Irving injury took place when he fell to the floor awkwardly in the third quarter. It is starting to seem like he is pretty fragile on the court, dating back to his time at Duke when he barely played a quarter of one season before going pro. It's the risk that fantasy basketball owners take when selecting a player like this, even though the season looked so promising for the Cavaliers early on.
So far this season he has averaged 22.6 points and 6.1 assists per game, numbers that are good enough to put him on the Eastern Conference All-Star team. Now fans have to wait to find out if he will be healthy enough to play in that game.
