INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - Cavaliers stars LeBron James and Kyrie Irving both underwent treatment for injuries as they prepared for Tuesday’s Game 5 against Chicago.

James rolled his left ankle in the third quarter of Sunday’s Game 4 win. He battled through the injury before hitting a game-winning shot at the buzzer to even the series 2-2. James said he watched several replays of him turning his ankle over and was shocked he was able to finish the game.

Irving underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed tendinitis in his left knee. He’s already dealing with a sprained right foot, an injury he sustained in Game 2 in the first round against Boston.

Irving expressed frustration at not being at 100 percent, but says there’s no way he can sit out and will “do whatever I can for my teammates.” Irving has had injuries before but never to both legs at the same time.
