Kyrie Irving's MRI on left knee not expected to show significant damage

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The entire Cleveland fan base is holding its breath while it waits for the results of Kyrie Irving's MRI. Apparently, the team doesn't expect bad news.

Kyrie Irving had a pretty scary New Year's Eve. He went down awkwardly in the second half of the Cleveland Cavaliers' loss to the Indiana Pacers and needed help to get to the locker room. At the time, it appeared that Irving had suffered a very serious knee injury. But just minutes later, he emerged from the locker room and played some significant minutes in the fourth quarter.

Following the game, Irving said that he heard a pop in his knee when he went down. That's definitely concerning, but the fact that he game back into the game and looked pretty much like himself is encouraging. He is undergoing an MRI on that knee on Wednesday to determine the severity of the injury. We should have the results at some point today from an official team press release, but for now we'll have to settle for this bit of insight from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski:

That's certainly good news and it should allow you to breathe a little easier until we find out for sure. Keep an eye on Fear the Sword and we'll keep you updated as we find out more about Kyrie's injury.
