Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving suffered from left knee tightness on Thursday night. Despite his injury, the Cavaliers still defeated the Utah Jazz 91-83 at Quicken Loans Arena.

This appears to be a minor flare up. Also, with the team playing the Jazz, this could have been precautionary to save him for stiffer competition.

Prior to his exit, Irving had 21 points, four rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes. The team is expected to update his condition when Tyron Lue meets with the media.

If this is minor, like we suspect, expect Irving to return on Saturday night at the Staples Center against the Los Angeles Clippers at 8:30 pm EST on ABC. Lue could give him some rest in that game and play him on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Lakers.

If Irving sits out, then the team will make Deron Williams the starter.
