The Cleveland Cavaliers are in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to take on the Miami Heat in preseason action this Saturday. While also in the City of God to cover the game, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst ran into Kyrie Irving while the Cavs were sightseeing and tweeted that Kyrie was wearing a walking boot. Obviously, Uncle Drew fans were alarmed at the news.
Here’s Windhorst’s original tweet, which had Twitter buzzing.

#Cavs guard Kyrie Irving sprained his right ankle in practice. He's wearing a boot for precautionary measures. Says it's not serious.

Kyrie Irving tweaked foot in practice yesterday. All X-rays & MRI negative. Not serious. Cavs just taking extra precaution with treatment.

Breathe easy Cavs fans. Kyrie isn’t seriously injured.
Will Kyrie stay healthy all season?
