Kyrie Irving day-to-day after MRI shows no knee damage

The Cleveland Cavaliers got some good news this afternoon when Kyrie Irving‘s MRI returned clean, only showing a left knee contusion – this according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN:

An MRI today in Cleveland showed Kyrie Irving has a left knee contusion and is day-to-day.

Irving went down on Tuesday afternoon on a drive to the basket. The Cavaliers point guard appeared to be stumbling after losing his balance and then landed awkwardly on his leg and could be seen rolling in pain. Irving, who said he heard a ‘pop’ in the knee was assisted off the court though later made his way back to the bench.

The Cavaliers reportedly weren’t overly concerned with the injury but wanted to get an MRI for precautionary measures.

Thankfully though it looks like Irving avoided any significant damage and he’ll be back on the court in the near future.

The healthy prognosis may also allow the Cavaliers and Lakers to continue their rumored Andrew Bynum-Pau Gasol trade rumors.
