Kyrie Irving withdrew from Sunday’s fourth game against the Bucks due to an obvious ankle injury, and he was eventually ruled out for the remainder of the fourth game.
Irving was injured in the second quarter because he landed awkwardly during a layup and sprained his ankle. He will stay on the floor and wait for subsequent possession of the ball.
Irving seemed to land on Giannis Antetokounmpo in the basket attempt, but was not fouled for weakening Irving.
The Nets, who no longer have guard James Harden, will have no Irving for the rest of the second quarter.
I don’t know how serious the injury is, but Irving can walk away on his own, albeit cautiously.
