Reporter Chris Forsberg believes Irving hurt his knee on a play where he cut to try and contest a shot.

"Win, lose, or draw - you're going to lose games - but if we have no attitude, we have no toughness, we're not having fun.it's going to be a long season". If they want to take me out of the starting lineup, get some juice in there, I'm with it. "That's the goal. The trade deadline's over". But I'm trying to win.
