Kyrie Irving and Trae Young have been of a tear of late, filling the box score with monster stat lines as both the Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks attempt to get their season's back on track.
Unfortunately, both left their respectives games early tonight, Irving with a knee injury and Young with an ankle.
With 5:31 left in the game, Irving would fight for the ball with Bradley Beal, before both players fell to the floor and Irving's knee twisting awkwardly under the Wizards' guards body.

Irving would stay down for a period of time before eventually rising to his feet and gingerly walking away. Irving would eventually check out of the game with 5:29 remaining and head to the locker room. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Brooklyn guard will undergo an MRI tomorrow to examine the extent of the damage.
Young would suffer a sprained ankle during the third quarter of the Hawks' game against the Dallas Mavericks, with team PR quickly ruling him out for the rest of the night.
"Just rolled it. Same one that I've hurt this year... We'll see," Young told reporters postgame.
Irving finished with 11 points on 5-for-12 shooting in the Nets loss to the Wizards, while Young had 12 points on 4-for-13 from the field.
