Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving will undergo an MRI on his left knee after saying he heard a  “pop” in the knee during Tuesday’s 91-76 loss to the Indiana Pacers.

Irving was injured when he slipped and fell on the court. Medical personnel attended to Irving, but he returned to the game, scoring 10 points in 35 minutes.

“I thought the worst had happened,” Irving said via the Akron Beacon Journal. “My left knee is pretty weak right now. I was falling all over the place. I didn’t have my legs under me.”

“I’m still hoping that there’s nothing wrong, just something slight, if anything at all,” Irving said. “Just hoping for the best.”
