Kyrie Irving To Have Season-Ending Surgery On Fractured Kneecap
ESPN: Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving suffered a fractured kneecap in Thursday's Game 1 loss and will undergo season-ending surgery, the team announced Friday.
Irving collapsed as he was driving with the ball with two minutes left in the Cavs' 108-100 loss to the Golden State Warriors and grabbed his left knee, which has been bothering him with tendinitis for the past six weeks. Initial tests done by the Cavs' medical staff revealed no damage to Irving's anterior cruciate ligament or medial collateral ligament, but an MRI on Friday revealed the fracture to his kneecap.
