A moment of concern for the Cleveland Cavaliers fans as their top point-guard Kyrie Irving left the game mid-way in the very intense OT period of NBA Finals Game 1 between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers in Oakland. He went straight to the locker room and watched helplessly as the Warriors take the first game, 108-100.
NBA TV's Rachel Nichols interviewed Irving about his injury after the game. The shifty point-guard said "You can tell by the tone of my voice, I am worried. There's something wrong. It felt a lot different on my left knee. I will be getting an MRI."
The All-Star game MVP has been dealing with injuries throughout the Playoffs. Few weeks back, doctors said that he has left knee tendinitis - an inflammation of a tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone. But, as what Kyrie said, it felt a lot different now. He's hoping that the upcoming MRI will reveal only a minor injury and no MCL or ACL damage.
What's even more alarming is that he walked out of the dugout with crutches. That means he can't put any weight on the banged-up knee.
