Kyrie Irving exited Sunday’s Game 4 vs. the Bucks with an apparent ankle injury, and he was eventually ruled out the remainder of Game 4.
Irving was hurt in the second quarter as he landed awkwardly and rolled his ankle on a layup attempt. He would stay on the floor for the ensuing possession.
Irving seemed to land on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s foot on the hoop attempt, but no foul was called for undercutting Irving.
The Nets, who were already without guard James Harden, would be without Irving for the remainder of the second quarter after that.
There’s no telling how severe the injury is, but Irving was able to walk off, albeit gingerly, under his own power.
Here’s the latest on the injury:
