The fact that Kyrie Irving had to be helped to the locker room, and left the injury on crutches after he left game 1 with a knee injury had to tell you this was more than just knee tendinitis. Kyrie will be out 3-4 months with a fractured knee cap.
First Love and now Kyrie. And let’s not forget about Anderson Verajao earlier in the season. The Cavs chances are looking pretty slim at the moment. No pressure, LeBron.
Here’s the official announcement from the Cavaliers:
Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving left last night’s NBA Finals game one in the overtime period with a left knee injury. He received an MRI today at Stanford Sports Medicine Clinic, which revealed a fractured left knee cap. He will have surgery to repair the knee in the coming days at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland by Cavaliers head team physician Dr. Richard Parker. His recovery time is projected to be three to four months and his status will be updated as appropriate.
