Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving left Saturday's game against the Washington Wizards with a sprained right knee.
Irving was injured midway through the fourth quarter as he wrestled with Wizards guard Bradley Beal for control of the ball. Beal fell to the ground in the process, trapping Irving's right leg under his body.
"I've done some pretty decent things to my knee in the past,'' Irving said. ''Just want to make sure that our medical staff did their check. The most important thing was just my ACL, making sure it was fine. But it was just a weird, weird, weird, weird fall. Just felt a lot of stretching and tension afterwards and just a bad fall.''
The Nets later announced that Irving suffered a sprained knee. Irving will have an MRI on Sunday.
