Brooklyn Nets superstar Kyrie Irving went down early in Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks due to an ankle issue. The team later released an update, announcing the 29-year-old is out for the rest of the game.

Kyrie Irving Injury

With James Harden already sidelined due to a hamstring injury, the loss of Irving could be potentially devastating for Brooklyn. As of the writing of this article, the Nets currently trail the Bucks, 68-56. Losing this matchup would tie this series up at two games apiece.

Kevin Durant will need to take on a much bigger workload if his two co-stars are forced to miss Game 5. The early returns on that have been less than ideal, as Durant is currently 6-of-16 with 7 rebounds and 2 assists.

Hopefully Irving and Harden can get back on the court soon. If not, the Nets will likely need a Herculean performance from Durant to survive this series.
