Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving left Thursday night's NBA Finals Game 1 in the overtime period with a left knee injury. He received an MRI on Friday at Stanford Sports Medicine Clinic, which revealed a fractured left knee cap.

He will have surgery to repair the knee in the coming days at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland by Cavaliers head team physician Dr. Richard Parker.

His recovery time is projected to be three to four months and his status will be updated as appropriate.
