Kyrie Irving Leaves Game 4 With Ankle Sprain! UPDATE!


The Big 3 in Brooklyn is at least temporarily down to a Big 1. Kyrie Irving twisted his ankle and left the game after coming down under the basket and stepping on Giannis Antetokounmpo's foot. X-rays have come back negative; further testing and treatment to follow. 

It happened in the 2nd quarter of Game 4 of the Brooklyn Nets/Milwaukee Bucks second-round series. Irving hobbled off the court back to the locker room.

One person who knows about sore ankles right now is Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell; he gave Kyrie a shout-out on Twitter:
