Kyrie Irving in walking boot and on crutches after suffering ankle injury
Kyrie Irving was in a walking boot and on crutches after suffering an ankle injury in Game 4 of the Brooklyn Nets’ playoff series with the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday.
Irving landed awkwardly after making a basket under the bucket in the second quarter of his team’s 107-96 loss to the Bucks. He left the game and underwent testing. X-rays were negative, but Irving will undergo an MRI as well.
According to a report, Irving was in a walking boot and on crutches after the game.
I’m told Kyrie was in a walking boot and using crutches after spraining his ankle during today’s Nets-Bucks Game 4. Steve Nash says that x-rays on the ankle were negative and that Kyrie will undergo further testing/evaluation tomorrow.

James Harden is out for the Nets due to his hamstring. Between Harden’s hamstring and Irving’s ankle injury, the Nets might be in rough shape the rest of the series.
