Kyrie Irving leaves game with apparent knee injury, returns for second half

That was scary.

Kyrie Irving went up to contest a jump shot with Russell Westbrook late in the first half, there was some knee-on-knee contact and Irving injured his knee. Everyone was scared because he seemed to twist it and hyper-extend it, and he stayed on the ground for a while with the entire team around before being helped to the locker room. LeBron James, who is not playing tonight and was in the locker room, ran out to help him back.

But Irving returned to the court for the second half.

Cavs fans everywhere can exhale.
