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