When the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics played Sunday, it was supposed to be a heated rivalry between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Instead, it quickly became a scene of consternation for the Cavs and their fans when James went down hard with an injury.
James came up limping pretty bad after driving to the rim with an apparent ankle injury, or even perhaps a knee injury due to a collision.
LeBron James is still on the bench area for the @cavs. Was standing, just sat down. Tweaked his ankle.

Either way, this did not look good.
This is definitely something we’ll be monitoring. After all the trades Cleveland just made to help the Cavs become competitive again, losing James for any amount of time would be a huge setback for this team.
