Kyrie Irving suffered a left knee contusion during Tuesday's loss at Indiana, the Cavaliers said. An MRI on Wednesday revealed no structural damage to the knee and Irving is listed as questionable for Thursday's home game against the Orlando Magic. 

Irving felt a "pop" in the knee while driving to the rim during the third quarter Tuesday. He fell to the court and had to be helped to the locker room, although he later returned for the fourth quarter. Irving complained after the game that the knee still felt weak and that he was falling on the court. 

“I thought the worst had happened,” he said Tuesday. 

After battling injuries each of his first three seasons, Irving said his goal was to play in all 82 games this season. 

"Scary moment but I'll be good," Irving wrote on his Twitter account Wednesday. "Thanks for everyoone's support and concern."
