Kyrie Irving, who will not play Wednesday, underwent an MRI on his sore knee Monday to make sure there was no structural damage.
The MRI came back negative and Irving is hopeful of being able to practice Friday. After Wednesday, he'll have missed two games with the ailment, which happened when he banged his knee during a post-All-Star practice. If Irving can practice Friday, he seems like a good bet to get back in the lineup Monday against the Knicks. We'll update you as soon as we know more.
