Without Irving and James Harden, who has missed all but the first 43 seconds of the series with a hamstring injury, the Nets suffered an 11-point loss to the Bucks, who evened the series at two games apiece. After the game, Nets head coach Steve Nash said that X-Rays on Irving's ankle returned negative, per Malika Andrews of ESPN.

Irving suffered the injury on a drive midway through the second quarter of Game 4. After he missed a contested layup, Irving landed on the foot of Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and remained down as the ball went the other way.
Brooklyn called a timeout, Irving exited the floor on his own power and was ruled out during the halftime break.
